"I had to put on several layers just to read this book. It makes Touching the Void seem like a pretty routine day on the hill." - Iain Macwhirter
"Cairngorm John is a remarkable piece of work: succinct, moving, compassionate, gripping, technically detailed and yet broad enough in its appeal to hold the attention of general audiences." - Rennie MacOwen.
