The Hielan' Ways was once the local name for the routes that connected the market town of Huntly over the Clashmach to remoter districts in the hill country to the west. A network of ancient lifelines; it was a vital link for those who lived along its way, enabling the flow of people, goods and livestock. Its distances were covered at walking pace; an area now largely empty of any human dwelling or activity, its heritage and significance is in danger of being condemned to history. Simone Kenyon was one of six artists asked, "how can we re-engage with this place?"
Simone undertook a long distance round walk looking at issues, plights and pleasures of women walking in wilderness and created a new map that brings the Hielan' Ways path back into the foreground.
