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 this book, 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.

_____________

Raynor knows that her husband Moth’s health is declining, getting worse by the day. She knows of only one cure: the healing power of walking.

Embarking on a journey across the Cape Wrath Trail, over 200 miles of gruelling terrain through Scotland’s remotest mountains and lochs, Raynor and Moth look to an uncertain future. Fearing that miracles don’t often repeat themselves.

But for all the physical struggle, there is healing. And so when their journey ends, they do what they know best: they keep walking . . .

Their journey began in fear. But can it end in hope?

From the glens of Scotland to the familiar shores of the South West Coast Path, this is the inspiring story of a thousand-mile journey and love letter to our land.
