Munro Legacy Exhibition

Monday 27th May 2024 - Friday 21st June 2024

To mark the 100th anniversary of Sir Hugh Munro’s death, The Munro Society presented ‘The Munro Legacy Exhibition’, at the A.K Bell Library in Perth in March 2019. The exhibition told the story of the exploration of Scotland’s mountains from the 19th century beginnings to the present day and in particular the contribution of the man whose name is used to describe Scotland’s highest mountains. 

The exhibition comprises pull-ups (roller banners), posters with text, maps and photographs, several display cabinets and 2 mannequins demonstrating clothing past and present. All of these tell the story of Sir Hugh’s life, the birth of the Tables, the growth of completers, the pioneers, the working class movement, the post war years, recent times and, of course, the Munro Society and its role today. Items on display include: Sir Hugh’s aneroid barometer, the ice axe used by the first Munroist, the Rev A. E. Robertson, and a copy of the original Munro’s Tables.

Such was the success of the Exhibition that it has been touring Scotland since 2019 and has been displayed at, amongst other places, Torridon, Portree, Birnam, Glasgow, Glenmore Lodge, Glen Doll, the Scottish National Parliament and Central Library in Edinburgh, Stirling and the Dundee and Fort William Mountain Film Festivals. Current and future displays are as follows:
