Scottish winter climbing - other forms of masochism are usually kept behind closed doors. Battered by wind, deluged by spindrift and grit blasted by powder, and freezing yer tits off on the belay. Yet, im already looking forward to the next time. A sociable couple of days climbing as a 3 on a bold icy Scabbard Chimney in SCNL and Minus 3 on the Ben. #winter #climbing #mixedclimbing #iceclimbing #scotland #scotwinter #snow #gluttonforpunishment
The Cairngorms is looking more like the Arctic Circle at the moment.
Let's talk about failure and not "achievement". Two days ago I attempted a route I thought I could complete.
When I arrived at the technical section the weather was terrible and I lost my nerve and turned around.
I'm starting to realise the importance of knowing when to turn around.
The last photo isn't a faulty camera it's what I could see as I descended the Mountain.

World Heritage Day lecture 2020 | "The Heritage Dilemma" - Making and Breaking World Cities
We are delighted that Loyd Grossman, internationally renowned heritage figure, will be delivering this year's World Heritage Day lecture.
Loyd will discuss the heritage dilemma faced by Edinburgh, where commercial and cultural businesses compete to flourish in a heritage rich environment, with little, if any, contribution to the ever-increasing cost of supporting it. Join us as we take a closer look at Edinburgh's own heritage dilemma.
About the speaker
Born in Boston in 1950, Loyd’s lifelong interest in heritage has involved him in a number of key organisations: he is a former Commissioner of English Heritage, and is currently President of The Arts Society, Vice President of the Churches Conservation Trust, and a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland, among many other roles.
Loyd was involved in a wide range of broadcasting including Through the Keyhole, and his love of food led him to create his own brand in 1995, which became one of Britain’s most successful new premium food brand.
In June 2015, Loyd was awarded a CBE for his services to heritage.
Date: Thursday 16 April 2020
Start time: 6pm
Venue: St Andrew's and St George's West, 13 George Street, Edinburgh EH2 2PA

Dried chamomile flowers are a key botanical in our Classic Old Tom Gin 🍸, lending a delicious crisp, floral note to compliment the juniper, warm citrus and spice rich gin.
Added along with saffron post distillation in the traditional Old Tom style due to the delicate nature of both botanicals, these aren’t just added for flavour but also as they are both originate from Morocco 🇲🇦 where our owners, Adam and Steffie, were married in 2017.
The complex flavour and aromatics of chamomile helps our Old Tom work with an array of mixers from dry tonic water to spicy ginger ale, crisp coconut water to fresh apple juice, but also in a host of citrus heavy cocktails like the Tom Collins or Army & Navy, or in our all-time favourite mixed drink, the Martinez.
