Mountain Aid Skills for the Hills in Glasgow - I'm giving a talk

On March 25 Mountain Aid is holding a Skills for the Hills event in Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. I'll be giving a talk on Gear for the Hills on behalf of The Great Outdoors at 2pm (the event runs from 10am until 4.30pm).

Other speakers include Cameron McNeish on Words in the Landscape, and  Heather Morning of Mountaineering Scotland on Skills for the Hills, Discover your Adventure. There'll be a Q&A after each talk.

There will also be exhibits from a wide variety of organisations and companies including the John Muir Trust, The Great Outdoors, Walk Highlands, Scottish Avalanche Information Service, Adventure Medical, Harvey Maps, Anquet, Cicerone, Mountain Bothies Association, and the Mountain Weather Information Service.

Entry is £2. It looks like a great day out!

Mountain Aid is a charity dedicated to promoting safety in the Scottish hills.


  1. Should it not be "Skills for the Hills" in the title?

    1. It should indeed! Thanks for spotting that. I'll change it.
