The Old Man Of Hoy Visitors Book
This small visitors visitors book was placed here in memory of Derek “Scotty” Scott who died in April 1991.
During his short life Scotty achieved many things one of them was an ascent of the Old Man Of Hoy , a day which he was to treasure.
For those who visit this place think of how precious life is and what we can achieved if we try together.
The Old Man Of Hoy had a small visitors book on the summit for many years. It was put there by member’s of the RAF Kinloss Mountain Rescue Team in memory of a past Team member who sadly died of cancer. Derek Scott died in 1991 and had climbed the Old man in 1985 with 6 team member’s it was a day he always talked about in his short life. Sadly missed by us all especially his family.

The book was pretty battered by the weather but we managed to recover some of it and copied it. I will publish it in a later blog.
