83 year old Edie believes that it is never too late – packing an old camping bag, leaving her life behind and embarking on an adventure she never got to have – climbing the imposing Mount Suilven in Scotland.
Newly-widowed after thirty years of nursing a demanding and invalid husband, Edie Moore is preparing to move into an old people’s home when she suddenly decides to attempt a long-held ambition to climb a Scottish mountain. She employs local camping shop owner Jonny as her guide and – when it turns out she is not as prepared as she thinks she is – her trainer.
Beautiful Scottish scenery as the backdrop to this tale of relationships, hope and courage.
