Commemorating Sir Hugh Munro

Date: Until Saturday 8 June 2019
Gateway to the Glens Museum, Kirriemuir

Sir Hugh Munro (1856 - 1919) of Lindertis near Kirriemuir was a founding member of the Scottish Mountaineering Club and first person to make a list of all Scottish mountains of 3000 feet or over. Sadly he died of pneumonia in Provence in 1919 while working in a wartime army canteen, having only two Munros left to climb. Visit the Gateway to the Glens museum to view a display dedicated to Munro and other mountaineers.
