Cel­e­brat­ing the great outdoors

The Oban Times - - Feature -

CEL­E­BRATE ev­ery­thing the great outdoors has to of­fer at The Fort Wil­liam Moun­tain Fes­ti­val (FWMF) 2017.

In col­lab­o­ra­tion with pre­sent­ing part­ners and spon­sors, the event is be­ing staged in and around Fort Wil­liam, the heart of the ‘Out­door Capital of the UK’, from Fe­bru­ary 15 to 19.

This year’s fes­ti­val is bring­ing to­gether an amaz­ing line-up of world- class ath­letes, speak­ers, and films for your en­joy­ment.

The fes­ti­val kicks off with a torch­light de­cent to open the Launch Night, fol­lowed by four main events, two stu­dio nights, a se­ries of work­shops, fringe events, and art fes­ti­val, and our ex­hi­bi­tion area.

Mike Pescod, chair­man of the High­land Moun­tain Cul­ture As­so­ci­a­tion, or­gan­is­ers of the fes­ti­val, said: ‘ The Fort Wil­liam Moun­tain Fes­ti­val cel­e­brates our wild land­scape and the op­por­tu­ni­ties it presents. We want to pro­mote the value of the land­scape of Lochaber as the best des­ti­na­tion in the UK to live, work and play.

‘ We have a su­perb line up of climbers and ex­plor­ers, moun­tain films, in­spi­ra­tional speak­ers and skills work­shops. It’s not just for ad­ven­ture ad­dicts though as any­one who ap­pre­ci­ates the land­scape of the Out­door Capital of the UK will find some­thing in the moun­tain fes­ti­val.’

You will want to be here to see some # moun­tain­le­gends share their pas­sion for moun­tain cul­ture through tales of epic ad­ven­tures, first as­cents, life chal­lenges, great­est achieve­ments, sur­vival sto­ries, amaz­ing films and so much more.

‘ We have all of the in­gre­di­ents to make a me­morable mo­ment, the only thing miss­ing from this win­ning recipe is you’, said Mike.

Fort Wil­liam Moun­tain Fes­ti­val is spon­sored by Jöt­tnar and in as­so­ci­a­tion with Three Wise Mon­keys Climb­ing and Ne­vis Land­scape Part­ner­ship.
