This Scottish winter has been taking a heavy toll of walkers and climbers.

Oh dear ... It is so sad for anyone and their family & friends. Andy was such an icon of climbing.
I sometimes mistook him in early photos (1960s/70s) for Chris Bonnington (or the other way round).
He will be sorely missed but leaves such a great legacy for the generations to come.
Only a hill but all of life to me, up there between the sunset and the sea.

Thoughts are with their families and friends. Very sad
Walking is the world’s oldest exercise and today’s modern medicine.
