Noel Williams receives top award!

Congratulations to one of Lochaber Geopark’s founders, Noel Williams, recipient of the Scottish Award for Excellence in Mountain Culture.

He has done a huge amount of work with the Geopark since the beginning and is the tutor of the Local Geology Course in March and one of our Geotour guides.

On receiving the award, Noel said: “I feel very lucky to live in such a wonderful part of the country and I’m amazed to be given an award for doing activities I enjoy so much. I’m passionate about helping people appreciate some of the astonishing events that have shaped the local landscape. I hope that, despite the difficult economic climate, Lochaber Geopark will continue to spread this message.”

Noel has written a lot of geological and climbing publications and is always passionate about teaching others about those subjects. A modest and talented man.

Very well deserved Noel.
