Essentially, Northern Edge Books is a grand name for some desk top publishing from the spare room. Until recently most of my work has been as a climbing instructor, teaching all things related to the hills, from mountain navigation through to Scottish winter climbing. I still teach but over the past few years I’ve spent a fair proportion of my time putting together two guidebooks. Books which will hopefully inspire people to get into the hills. I’ve tried to make them as easy-to-use and as informative as possible. I’ve taken care to have them well-made and had them printed in the UK. I’ve also tried to make sure there’s something in them for everyone.

If you purchase a book from this site, all the money will reach me, the author (I wouldn’t want to paint this site’s purpose as being anything else). There’s no doubt you’ll be able to buy these books cheaper from a certain online retailer… but you’ll feel much warmer inside if you buy them directly from me instead 😉
