"...So slight were we
Who walked the edge

So brief our hold
Who had the world beneath our feet.”

Inspiring words by W H 'Bill' Murray (1913-1996). An officer with the Highland Light Infantry, Murray served in WWII in North Africa. He was captured in 1940 and spent the rest of the war years in prison camps in Italy and Germany. He experienced the unthinkable, and rose above it by returning, in his imagination, to his beloved Scottish mountains. In secret, he wrote 'Mountaineering in Scotland' on stolen toilet paper; when the paper was confiscated, he began it again. The book later became a mountaineering classic.

An extraordinary man among thousands more extraordinary men and women, Murray received the Mungo Park Medal of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society in 1952.

"I still get the same simple thrill out of glimpsing a tiny patch of snow in a high mountain gully and feel the same urge to climb towards it." (Sir Edmund Hillary FRSGS)
