Merryn Glover on The Hidden Fires: A Cairngorms Journey with Nan Shepherd

We are delighted to welcome Merryn Glover, the first ever Writer in Residence for the Cairngorms National Park, to St Andrews to discuss everything Nan Shepherd and Cairngorms in The Hidden Fires.

Elemental, fierce and full of wonder, the Cairngorm mountains are the high and rocky heart of Scotland. To know them would take forever, to love them demands a kind of courageous surrender.

In The Hidden Fires , Merryn Glover undertakes that challenge with Nan Shepherd as companion and guiding light. Following in the footsteps and contours of The Living Mountain , she explores the same landscapes and themes as Shepherd’s seminal work. This is a journey separated by time but unified by space and purpose, a conversation between two women across nearly a century that explores how entering the life of a mountain can illuminate our own.
