Your fine report highlights why we go to the hills and why we find it worthwhile, thanks for sharing it with us.

It has been a very sad time but Ian was doing what he loved in a most wonderful part of the country. I still recall my time there with him 30 years ago to the day walking through Knoydart as one the best adventures with him. The whole family appreciate the report and all comments made.
Many thanks for your post. I'm glad you have good memories and very much appreciate your comments. My thoughts and best wishes to you and your family.

One can only hope that the man died of natural cause and in this way died doing what he loved most.
My heart goes out to his family and relatives.
