With the support of grants from the Scottish Mountaineering Trust and a great deal of hard work by Club members, an additional 80 years of SMC Journals have been scanned and are now available to all on the Club’s website. With lockdown keeping most of us at home, this is especially good news as the Journals make fascinating reading. Most of the photographs are of course in black and white, which perhaps adds to their appeal. As these are OCR’ed volumes you can perform a full text search to find information, but note also that there are four sets of indexes also on the site, so you can quickly find a particular Journal if required.
The Journals from the Club’s foundation in 1889 until 1929 were already on the website and the newly uploaded Journals cover the period from 1930 to 2008, so there is a huge amount of extra reading now available. Please note that Journals from No.135 onward are particularly large files (200mb plus) so a high-speed connection is helpful. The final batch of Journals from 2008 are in the process of being scanned and will be uploaded in due course. To view and download the Journals, please go to:- Journal/Journal Downloads
The Club would like to thank the Scottish Mountaineering Trust for their support for this project and especially Club members Robin Campbell, Tony Stone, Mike Watson, Martin McKenna, Derek Pyper, Graeme Morrison, John Hall, Rob Ferguson, Noel Williams and Simon Richardson who did the work.
