Kenn returns to the Highlands of his youth, back to the river which has haunted his dreams since boyhood. Determined to walk all the way back to its source, Kenn embarks on a journey that will lead him deep into the wilderness of his own heart.

Profound and moving, Highland River is a stirring tale of what is lost and what endures, and the unexpected ways we can be renewed.

A novel of unusual distinction
Irish Independent

The novel should take its place in the canon of High Modernist literature, along with the likes of Virginia Woolf's To the Lighthouse, Katherine Mansfield's Prelude and D.H. Lawrence's Sons and Lovers . . . Wonderful . . . An example of nature writing, memoir, biography, history, a how-to manual for budding fishermen, and a reflective essay about the making of literature itself
Scotsman

This book must be read as one would listen to music . . . scenes are projected with a crystal clarity, sharply defined, with an odd double quality of intense immediacy and a sort of enclosed detachment
Times Literary Supplement

Has a deep and moving appeal
