The Fox wins the Mountain Literature category in the Banff Mountain Book Competition

We are delighted to announce that The Fox of Glencoe has been honoured with this year’s Mountain Literature Award at the 2022 Banff Mountain Book Competition.

This internationally recognised competition celebrates mountain literature in all its forms, and attracts entries from all over the world. It’s fabulous that Hamish MacInnes, legend of Scottish mountaineering, rescue, film making and equipment design, is being recognised at this prestigious event.

Working with Hamish and his friends to get the project started, and then completing it after his death, was a great privilege for the team here at the Press. To them, to other contributors and for the support from our owners, the Scottish Mountaineering Trust, we offer our heartfelt thanks.

Visit the 2022 Banff Mountain Book Awards website to see what the judges said, and to see the other category winners. The winner of the Grand Prize will be announced on the 3 November.
