The Glasgow HF Outdoor Club is currently holding a centenary exhibition of documents and photographs illustrating its 100 year history.
Highlights of the exhibition, in the Mitchell Library, Glasgow, include original hand-written documents by Tom Hunter from the 1960s concerning the club's initiative to create the West Highland Way.
There are also documents and photographs from the 1920s about the club’s installing a landscape feature indicator and plinth on the summit of Ben Lomond in 1929 in response to an initiative by the Daily Record.
The exhibition is housed on the 5th floor of the Mitchell Library throughout the month of April.
A permanent record of some of the heritage material is also being created on the club’s dedicated heritage website. Both the exhibition and the heritage website have been funded by a grant to the club from the Heritage Lottery Fund under its ‘Sharing Heritage Scheme’.
