Pictures by David McConnell Hunter
Tom Weir's Country

In memory of the late Tom Weir who passed away at the age of 91 on July 6, 2006, here are a few photographs taken around Tom's home base of Gartocharn on the south shore of Loch Lomond. The selection includes a number of views of Tom's favourite hills -- the Campsie Fells. Located just north of Glasgow, these hills introduced Tom to a lifetime of outdoor adventure.
