Mark Inglis' Talk

Between losing his legs at 23-years-old due to frostbite and then going on to be the only double amputee to have stood on the roof of the world, the summit of Mount Everest, Mark Inglis has carved out careers as a scientist, a world recognised winemaker, sportsman, trekking guide and a leading international motivator. Visit his website:<>

Or join him for a walk from Ruthven to Huntly (ca 10k) on 11 November. Start 11am, The Square, Hunty (minibus), finish approximately 2.30pm. Refreshments at Deveron Arts' office afterwards by Daisy Williamson.


Norma D. Hunter's Walk

As part of Mark Inglis' visit to Huntly, Artist Norma D. Hunter will be creating a Huntly Wish Tree. From a Clootie Well in Munlochy, Black Isle, Norma will collect water and bring it home to Huntly by foot. Her pilgrimmage through Invernessshire and Moray to Huntly will take a week. On the last walk between Keith and Huntly Mark Inglis will accompany her.

There is a long standing tradition of Clootie Wells in Scotland. The waters of the wells are believed to be very beneficial to health. By dipping a strip of clothing from an afflicted person in the waters of the well and hanging them on a nearby tree the illness is supposed to leave the person as the material deteriorates. Norma D. Hunter will create a wish tree in the Meadow woods of Huntly blessed with the waters of the Clootie Well.
