Cairngorm Ranger
by Nic Bullivant

This is the first book by anyone trying to manage visitors to a popular mountain area with a controversial recent history and a continuing conservation regime. It is written from "the inside", not just as an observer.

Nic Bullivant invites you to come for a walk in the Cairngorm Mountains. He turns out to be a chatty companion, but soon you realise that you have with you someone who has 20 years of inside knowledge, a huge depth of understanding and a clear way of explaining even quite obscure subjects. His witty descriptions of the variety of reactions the mountains produce in visitors and his compelling honesty and passion for his subject will make this a book you will want to keep and re-read.

This is a warts-and-all account of the efforts to keep a natural area safe from careless development that could only have been written by someone on the inside. You may be surprised that this is a first book, but it follows an orchestral symphony about the Cairngorms of similar breadth and scale by the same author. This book is like a symphony about a mountain range that few have come to know so well.

It is liberally illustrated with the author's own photographs, and some intriguing archive photos, too. This will be a reference volume for many years to come.
