About this book

After an initial visit of three months to the Atlas Mountains in 1965, well-known travel writer, climber and photographer Hamish Brown has been back every year since, and The Mountains Look on Marrakech is something of a love story about one man's lifelong devotion to the Atlas Mountains and the Berber Highlanders who so strongly remind us of Scottish history, although in a harsher, bigger world where storms and flash floods can cause havoc.

Hamish makes light of what was a complicated and notable journey with endless passes, gorges and peaks taken in. With his wide knowledge of the Atlas and careful planning, the journey was kept in steady flow despite the many hazards, but it is the many cameos of description, meetings with villagers, entertaining folk tales, etc. which will beguile the reader and surely make this one of the classic stories of modern adventuring.
