As a young man Ian was posted to RAF Kinloss Mountain Rescue Team where he was involved in some of the most legendary call-outs in Scottish mountain history, including the 1963 New Year tragedy on the Isle of Skye.

After leaving the RAF, he remained an active member of the Lochaber Mountain Rescue Team and was involved in the first lower down the north face of Ben Nevis – an epic 1,500-foot descent to rescue stricken climbers in the middle of winter.

Following a couple of years on Antarctica with the British Antarctic Survey, he returned to the Highlands and opened the first Nevisport shop with his close friend Ian ‘Suds’ Sutherland. Join Ian as he recounts his many adventures and mishaps. A must-see for anyone with an interest in Scottish mountaineering and mountain rescue. This is on at Inverness Eden Court on 31 Oct 2016.
