Alan Rowan the midnight mountaineer

An evening with Alan Rowan – The Midnight Mountaineer!
Thursday 31 May 2018 7-8pm

Join us at the Gateway to the Glens Museum for an evening talk by Alan Rowan, mountaineer, writer and author of two books; Moonwalker: Adventures of a Midnight Mountaineer and A Mountain before Breakfast.

Alan is lives in Carnoustie and is a member of two local mountain clubs, he became known as the midnight mountaineer because much of his hillwalking took place after finishing work around midnight.

Alan commented:

“For 15 years, from 1994 to 2009, I regularly climbed Scotland’s mountains in the middle of the night, getting through the best part of two rounds of Munros and one round of Corbetts.”

The midnight mountaineer is currently working on a third book, called Mountains of the Moon, which entails a mountain walk on every one of the 13 full moons this year. For the first time in 52 years, there are 13 full moons instead of usual 12, and there are two Blue Moons.

During the evening talk, titled Mountains of the Moon Alan will explain that each mountain should have a link to the particulate moon, e.g. Wolf Moon meant he was in the Corrie of the Wolf in Beinn Alligin.
