FRI NIGHT VID: Robin Campbell - A Portrait

Tonight's Friday Night Video features a portrait of Robin Campbell, the recipient of the 2015 Award for Excellence in Mountain Culture, presented at the Fort William Mountain Festival. Filmed and edited by Dave and Claire MacLeod, this short video gives an insight into a climber who contributed over 50 years worth of dedicated work into the Scottish Mountaineering Club (SMC).

Serving on the SMC Committee from 1963 - 1966, as Journal Editor from 1965-75, Vice President from 1992-94, President from 1994-96, Honorary Archivist and Librarian from 1997 and 2011 respectively to date, Robin's work has ensured that a wealth of historical records and photographs are preserved for current and future generations. 

As well as Robin himself, this film also features Scottish climbing legends Jimmy Marshall, Paul Brian, Ken Crocket...and some fine singing to boot!
