About the Author

Peter Kemp was born in Govan and raised in a grey, post-war Glasgow. With generations of shipbuilding in his veins, he followed the path that was laid for him, working on the construction of the QE2 as an apprentice patternmaker. He witnessed first hand the death of shipbuilding on the Clyde and the industrial turmoil of the time, yet amidst this world of heavy industry Peter managed to discover a different, more natural, world on his doorstep. The world of Scotland's scenery inspired Peter's lifelong passion for the great outdoors: since 1990 he has been guiding people from all over the world over the hills, sharing the experience of Scotland's scenery with them. After many years balancing the dichotomy of periods of frantic work with unemployment, Peter gave up building luxury yachts and is now living quietly in Glasgow with his wife of 32 years, May, and one of his four sons. Peter still ventures onto Scotland's hills both on his own and as a guide, paints, and dabbles in politics as a trade union official.
