The Cairngorm Mountain Rescue Team will host an art exhibition at their base for the first time – showing work by two local artists whose fathers served in the team.
Angus Grant and Elizabeth Pirie will display their work at the CMRT’s Inverdruie base, near Aviemore, from August 10-18, to help raise funds for the volunteers’ vital rescue work.
“Into the Cairngorms” will feature well-loved landscapes from the national park, taking visitors from the beautiful lochs to the spectacular peaks.
Al Gilmour, chairman of Cairngorm Mountain Rescue Team, said: “As a rescue team we depend on support from our local community and beyond and this is a great opportunity to give something back to two local artists. It is especially fitting as both the artists have a close and long-standing family link to the team.
“This is the first time we have ever held an occasion like this like in the 50-plus years of the team, so it is especially exciting doing something that reflects the environment we operate in from an entirely different angle.”
Event will be held on:
