/ Andy Nisbet
I wrote some stuff about the man that might be of interest.
That's fantastic, a proper tribute. My only contact with Andy was via email, reporting new routes. He was always prompt and helpful. Their was a thing when he wouldn't accept one of our Caithness route names, we had some tit for tat. We argued the point but he was adamant. He was wrong but hey ho, I love his history and contribution to Scottish climbing so that was that.
