The first of a series of lectures on winter mountaineering skills is to be held in Glencoe on February 2nd.
Held at the Clachaig Inn and arranged by the Mountaineering Council of Scotland, the talk will feature mountain guide Roger Wild, who will pass on his experience of climbing and walking in the Scottish mountains during winter.
Mr Wild will be back at the same venue for a repeat performance on February 9th and entry is free on both nights.
Outdoor enthusiasts keen to don men's winter jackets
or women's winter jackets
to go walking
, or who want to head for the hills in their climbing gear
in the winter may benefit from attending one of the talks.
The Clachaig Inn is a popular pub with walkers and climbers in the valley, set at the foot of Scorr nam Fiannaidh, a Munro that lies at the north end of the famous Aonach Eagach ridge.
It is also close to the Glencoe youth hostel.
