Description

Born in the Central Scotland town of Bonnybridge, Ian McNeish may have seemed an unlikely climbing enthusiast. The closest 'peak' to his home was Cowden Hill, which at an elevation of 55.4 metres is only the 14,650th highest in Britain! But from these early experiences on the hills, encouragement from friends and colleagues soon saw Ian embarking on a lifelong adventure which would see him climbing Munros and Corbetts alike. Whether cycling through the Outer Hebrides for charity or white-water rafting in New Zealand, Ian is someone who has seen life. But nothing could have prepared him for facing the biggest climbing challenge of his career when he tackled the famous peak of Mont Blanc-the highest mountain in the Alps, with a summit 4,808 metres above sea level. From his experiences in Mountain Rescue Teams to not one but two successful attempts at Scotland's famous cross-country Ultimate Challenge, join Ian as he relates amazing stories of some of the most stunning places in the world. He will reveal what it means to truly be alive in the mountains.
