The Scottish Mountaineering Club was formed in Glasgow in 1889, as a result of correspondence in the Glasgow Herald initiated by William W. Naismith. Although other Scottish clubs existed at this time, such as the Cairngorm Club, these had only local membership and limited technical aspirations. By contrast, the founder members of the SMC included a good number who already had Alpine experience and wished to use their skills in their native country.


In the early 1960s the SMC formed a charitable trust, the Scottish Mountaineering Trust. Part funded by revenue from the SMC's guidebooks, the Trust has given support to many projects over the years, including to the National Trust for Scotland and of the John Muir Trust and to footpath maintenance projects generally. The Trust also supports Mountaineering Scotland.


Review:

Publisher's website 2018

A remarkable book by a remarkable man. Left blinded and one-legged at the end of World War II, it describes his return to walk and climb in the hills. Published in book form in 1989, with the ISBN 9780907521259. This is in effect a new edition, as many corrections were made using the late author's personal notes.
