Last chance to see Mountain Heritage Collection at Glen Roy /Roybridge  ends Sunday 16 October.

Chounaird Zero ice axe and hammer great gear in its day ! Late 70’s early 80’s

A local Guide Mick Tighe has over his life in the mountains amassed a vast amount of Mountaineering gear.

 He has always been fascinated by the history of many classic items and he saved much of this from destruction over the years. Over the years it has become the Scottish Mountain Heritage Collection and is now a charity with some of Scotlands finest Mountaineering artefacts. It is in it final few days of display in Glen Roy.


The last few days of the Mountain Heritage Collection is on display at Glen Roy /Roybridge at Mick Tighe house! I visited last week and it was a great morning. Lots of pals have been up and it well worth the visit and Mick and his wife Cathy are great hosts!

The ice dagger only for the brace !

There is so much old equipment associated with Mountaineering and great photos many seen for the first time in years!

So if you have some free time it’s well worth a visit if not have a look on their website they are always after old Mountaineering gear , especially if there is a story attached to it! Or a donation to help keep the Collection together !
