Organisers of the Fort William Mountain Festival have announced that Dr Adam Watson, biologist, ecologist, mountaineer, author and defender of the environment, is the fifth recipient of the Scottish Award for Excellence in Mountain Culture
In reply to UKC News: Dr Watson appears to be a remarkable, inspiring individual. This recognition is sponsored by Rio Tinto Alcan. That's not an organisation that immediately comes to mind as being into environmental protection [ http://goo.gl/bxuo5 ; http://goo.gl/mCqml ]. Not saying they're the worst offenders , just wondering how it must feel to be honoured in this way.
