Best-selling author of The Salt Path and The Wild Silence, Raynor Winn, joins us for her latest memoir in Landlines. In Raynor’s next journey, we see her traversing the famous Cape Wrath Trail, so it seems only fitting that she will be visiting us in Scotland for her book tour.

Some people live to walk. Raynor and Moth walk to live . . .

Raynor Winn knows that her husband Moth’s health is declining, getting worse by the day. She knows of only one cure. It worked once before. But will he – can he? – set out with her on another healing walk?

The Cape Wrath Trail is over two hundred miles of gruelling terrain through Scotland’s remotest mountains and lochs. But the lure of the wilderness and the beguiling beauty of the awaiting glens draw them northwards. Being one with nature saved them in their darkest hour and their hope is that it can work its magic again.

As they set out on their incredible thousand-mile journey back to the familiar shores of the South-west Coast Path, Raynor and Moth map the landscape of an island nation facing an uncertain path ahead.

In Landlines, she records in luminous prose the strangers and friends, wilderness and wildlife they encounter on the way – it’s a journey that begins in fear but can only end in hope.
