Chris Townsend in Aboyne

christownsend

Just had a pleasant time with Chris Townsend in Hilltrek in Aboyne. He signed my well-thumbed "backpacker's handbook" and i bought a signed copy of his new book "guide to walks in the north-west highlands". Over free tea and shortbread, he told me tales of derring-do about being a mountain and wilderness writer and photographer. And the scoop? Well, that's private.

All i will say is that he is taller in real life.
