Martin Moran book Higher Ground A great read and a ideal stocking filler for Christmas.

The Boat Of Garten Community Centre  will have Martin Moran giving a talk. Martin Moran has an incredible life and this will be well worth going out to hear him.For decades now, Martin Moran has made his living as a mountain guide based in Strathcarron, Wester Ross. The Scottish hills have by no means bound or defined him though. It was after his ascent of the North Face of the Eiger that he made his decision to take the mountain guide qualifications. Martin has climbed and guided in the Alps, Norway, and the Himalayas, experiencing life changing adventures, near death experiences, meeting and guiding many interesting people. Humour has never been far away, but neither has excitement and interest. He has lived life in the mountains to the full and this is his story. He is an incredible unassuming person a member of his local Torridon Mountain Rescue Team and one of the incredible mountaineers of his generation.

“We are delighted to confirm our next speaker for 7.30pm, Monday 23rd November in the Community Hall will be Martin Moran.  His talk “Higher Ground – the life of a mountain guide” is definitely not to be missed!
Martin is one of Britain’s most experienced and respected mountaineers and mountain guides, having been the first person to complete all the Munro’s in a single season in Winter back in 1985.
Since then he has run a successful climbing school, running alpine courses for 30 consecutive seasons and has lead 23 expeditions to the Indian Himalaya. He has developed a secondary career in writing and lecturing and has authored 5 books.
This talk will draw extensively from his autobiography – Higher Ground – and his experiences in Scotland, The Alps, Norway and the Himalayas. He will celebrate the remarkable people he has met and guided along the way along with the magnificent mountain ranges he has explored. With observational and satirical insights Martin’s talk will entertain as well as inspire”.
