In The Life of a Forestry Ploughman, Peter Weir takes the reader on an eventful and entertaining journey from Argyll, Scotland to Albuquerque, New Mexico. From high jinks on the water, to high risks on the mountains, Peter has seen most of it! Born in The Lodge, Castle Lachlan, Strathlachlan just after the Second World War, Peter left school at fifteen mostly because he was fed up standing in the corner getting the belt and started his working life close to home at Castle Lachlan. Later, he was employed in road construction, work which took him to London in the late 1960s. On his return to Scotland, he joined the forestry (initially as a ploughman), travelling all over Argyll in the course of his work. For many years, he managed the Glencoe Ski Centre, and also served as a member of Glencoe Mountain Rescue Team. He diversified his many talents into building his own property, as well as running his own restaurant and guesthouse. In this memoir, he recalls the working practices, the characters and the adventures of these times, from the 1950s to present day.
