For readers based in Scotland I'll post up details of interesting Scottish lectures related to living in Scotland and appreciating its environment. First up is the North East Mountain Trust's winter lecture programme which you can find details of here. The talks are based in Aberdeen this coming winter. They include:

Drennan Watson - "The future of the Cairngorms - a reality check". The environmentalist and author will be talking about what has changed in the Cairngorm area in the 30 years of his work and what the future may hold for the area and its people.

Andy Hall - "A sense of belonging to Scotland" Andy Hall's books have been described by Ewan McGregor as " the most beautiful collection of photos of Scotland that I've ever seen". Andy will describe the places he photographed & the people he met whilst exploring places of special meaning and famous Scots including Sir Alex Ferguson, Ian Rankin and Eddi Reader.

Ellice Milton - "Donside Seasons" Wildlife watcher and pro photographer will take a photographic journey through the Donside seasons looking at habitats, plants, birds, animals and insects.

I will also be giving a lecture for the NEMT on November 14th looking at my contributions and explorations in Scottish rock climbing.

Just read a rather interesing article in the Independant today about the Cairngorms.

I live in Ballater (well withing the Cairngorm National Park).

I`m also interested in climate change so this was doubly interesing to me.
