Alan Rowan: 'Tales of a Nocturnal Munroist'. Alan Rowan has been a journalist for nearly 40 years, working in Dundee, Aberdeen and on a variety of national newspapers in Glasgow. He is a mountain fanatic, having climbed the Munros twice, the Corbetts and all the 3000-foot peaks in England, Ireland and Wales, many of them during the wee, small hours. He is currently closing in on a third round of Munros as well as ticking off the Grahams.
And I'm sure Dave Macleod needs no introduction or bigging up on here, suffice to say I'm sure it'll be a fascinating talk covering old exploits and new.
