About the Author

Anna (Nan) Shepherd was born in 1893 and died in 1981. Closely attached to Aberdeen and her native Deeside, she graduated from her home university in 1915 and for the next forty-one years worked as a lecturer in English. An enthusiastic gardener and hill-walker, she made many visits to the Cairngorms with students and friends. She also travelled further afield - to Norway, France, Italy, Greece and South Africa - but always returned to the house where she was raised and where she lived almost all of her adult life, in the village of West Cults, three miles from Aberdeen on North Deeside. To honour her legacy, in 2016, Nan Shepherd's face was added to the Royal Bank of Scotland five-pound note.

Pressingly modern . . . Pinpoints timeless philosophical debates about the naming of things and our relationship to the environment -- AMY LIPTROT
Shepherd is a fierce looker. And like many fierce lookers, she is also a mystic * * Guardian * *
Largely unrecognised during her lifetime, Nan Shepherd is finally being acclaimed for her literary legacy - and her books are influencing a whole new generation of writers . . . The Weatherhouse - Shepherd's second novel . . . widely considered her best -- Chitra Ramaswamy * * The Scotsman * *
