Looking forward to visiting Inverness on Friday (25th November) for my talk for Tiso’s at Millburn Academy. Starts at 7.30pm. I’ll be showing some video clips from over the years, going away back to one of my earlier television programmes, The Edge - 100 Years of Scottish Mountaineering, which I presented for BBC2 in 1994 or thereabouts. We’ll bring it all up to date with some clips of our big climbing extravaganza on Harris last summer, which recently won a Scottish BAFTA.
I’ll also bring along some books and DVD’s and if anyone’s in the mood for some Christmas shopping I’ll be happy to sign books or whatever.
Been down at the Kendal Mountain Festival at the weekend where I was speaking with Richard about our big project for next year, a long walking route from the Scottish Borders to Cape Wrath. I must admit it felt pretty tame stuff compared with all the high adrenaline adventures that were being discussed over the weekend. As ever it was a brilliant weekend and I must admit I enjoyed meeting up with a lot of old friends. I’ll look forward to meeting up with some old friends in Inverness too, and maybe meeting some new ones.
