Encounters with tramps, tinkers and hawkers, and of hitching to Ben Nevis in a lorry full of dead sheep, are all described in Borthwicks light-hearted style. He weaves a hilarious tale, aided by the eccentric folk he meets, and this light-hearted read continues to delight, decades after it was first published.Always A Little Further is essential reading for any climber, or indeed anyone, who longs to be transported from the mundane day to day to the wilds of Scotland.
