High and Low is Keith Foskett’s Next Major Release
Due in the summer of 2017
Keith Foskett was diagnosed with mild depression in June. As memories began slotting into place, he realised that his suffering hadn’t merely been confined to the previous few months.
A year before, aware that he wasn’t firing on all cylinders, he decided to spend a few weeks in the great outdoors in an attempt to initiate a healing process. His idea was to hike across Scotland.
This is a poignant, colourful and often hilarious account of a hike through one of the most beautiful countries in the world. From the wilds of the north-west, he traversed south on what is regarded as the toughest trail in the UK: the Cape Wrath Trail. Continuing onto the West Highland Way, one of the most popular hiking routes in the country, he eventually turned east and crossed Scotland.
Battling ferocious weather, the ubiquitous Scottish midge and strange-sounding local delicacies, this is one man’s battle to conquer the wilds of Scotland, and his own psychological demons.
