A Brush With Rivers By Tim Scott Bolton

Welcome to the Halladale

Beginning its journey in the wilds of the Knockfin Heights, deep in the heart of the Flow Country, the Halladale runs north for some twenty two miles before entering the sea in Melvich Bay. During this course, the surrounding topography subtly changes the rivers nature from wild moorland, through craggy cascades interrupted by gravelly flats to the larger, slow-flowing holding pools which characterise so much of the lower Halladale as it flows through farmland below.

A Brush With Rivers

Tim Scott Bolton has, from an early age, with both rod and paint box mucked about in, on or beside water.

In A Brush with Rivers, he visits Kenya, Kashmir, Afghanistan, Ireland and Russia - but most of the waters covered are the glorious salmon rivers of Scotland and the crystal clear chalk streams of southern England.

Now in his reflective mid-70s, Tim has brought together fifty years of memoirs, largely from diaries, and the anecdotes and quotes of others.They create a fascinating and wide ranging book, delightfully illustrated by his oils and watercolours. The river plans of a number of salmon rivers he has created over the years are also included, and the resulting book is both a good read and something of beauty.
