Fort William Mountain Festival back to a live, multi-venue event in 2022

The Fort William Mountain Festival 2022 programme has been announced. A superb line-up of uplifting talks, exhilarating film screenings, mountain skills workshops and exhibitions in the Outdoor Capital of the UK. Over five days in February.  During the best winter walking, climbing and snowsports conditions of the year.

For the 18th outing of the Fort William Mountain Festival, organisers are delighted to announce that they will once again stage a live, multi-venue event in and around the bustling Highland town of Fort William, at the heart of The Outdoor Capital of the UK (OCUK), a location known for its adventure roots, its global provenance, stunning landscapes, peaks, glens, waterways, beaches, history and culture. 

From Wednesday 16 to Sunday 20 February 2022, they have programmed a stunning line-up packed full of inspiration, education and entertainment; action and adventure. It includes presentations from world-class outdoor adventurers; adrenaline-fueled and thought-provoking films from both the Festival’s very own international film competition entries and the Banff Centre Mountain Festival World Tour;  a number of award nights, including The Scottish Awards for Excellence in Mountain Culture and The Photographer of the Year Award, celebrating a range of outstanding achievements; thought-provoking environmental discussions; and a collection of quality fringe events including winter mountain skills workshops, philosophy walks, and bike and running themed nights.

Visitors to and residents of Lochaber can celebrate everything that the great outdoors has to offer at the Fort William Mountain Festival, presented in association with the Nevis Landscape Partnership, the OCUK, Ellis Brigham, Jahama Highland Estates, John Muir Trust, and the Highland Council.

Rod Pashley, Chairman of The Highland Mountain Culture Association, organisers of the Fort William Mountain Festival, said: “In 2021 we produced a stunning online Festival amid the challenges of Covid-19. Now, as we finalise the programme and update the website for our 2022 Festival, we’re back to a live, multi-venue event, celebrating the wild landscape that surrounds us in Fort William and Lochaber; the inspiration that fuels the passion and enthusiasm behind the Mountain Festival.  The mountains, glens, rivers and coastline influence our culture in many ways, whether it is the beauty of the landscape, our engagement with it or the opportunities we find in it.

“The Fort William Mountain Festival has something for everyone with a love for the outdoors.  With an exciting programme of adventure and events taking place throughout the area, the festival offers a superb line-up of inspirational talks from top climbers and mountaineers, mountain bikers, mountain runners and mountain filmmakers, together with exhilarating film screenings from cutting-edge outdoor adventurers; mountain skills workshops and a festival exhibition. 

“Of course, the Festival is not just for high adrenaline adventure enthusiasts.  It is for everyone who appreciates the great outdoors. With the best winter walking, climbing and snowsports conditions of the year, visiting Fort William and Lochaber in February, for the Mountain Festival, is the perfect time of year to experience the stunning landscape of the area first-hand.”

As Vice-Chair of the Federation for Detached Youth Work, Graeme represents the UK in Dynamo International, an international network of street educators. This presentation considers the link between philosophy and walking in general and introduces the practice of ‘Philosophy Walks’ in particular. Walking, of all outdoor activities, seems to offer a particular means to think about these experiences, but also the world beyond. People who write about walking almost always make philosophical claims. And those who write about philosophy often describe how walking helps them to clarify their thoughts.

The ‘Vanishing Ice’ book night – Sunday 20 February -17.30- 18.30

The diaries of a Scottish Snow Hunter. Meet Iain Cameron, who was nine years old when snow patches first captured his imagination, and they have been inextricably bound with his life ever since. He developed his expertise through correspondence (and close friendship) with research ecologist Dr Adam Watson and is today Britain’s foremost authority on this weather phenomenon. There are few more beautiful places than Scotland’s winter mountains. But even when most of the snow has melted, isolated patches can linger well into summer and beyond. In The Vanishing Ice, Iain Cameron chronicles these remarkable and little-seen relics of the Ice Age, describing how they have fascinated travellers and writers for hundreds of years, and reflecting on the impact of climate change.

The Fort William Mountain Festival 2022 runs from Wednesday 16 to Sunday 20 February 2022 at venues in and around the bustling Highland town of Fort William, at the heart of the ‘Outdoor Capital of the UK’.  The main presentations and film nights take place in the Nevis Centre, The Highland Cinema, the Highland Bookshop and Three Wise Monkeys indoor climbing centre.  The Festival Launch Night will take place at the Nevis Centre. Venues for Fringe events can be found on the website.

The Fort William Mountain Festival 2022 is sponsored by The Outdoor Capital of the UK, Ellis Brigham, Jahama Highland Estates, the John Muir Trust, Highland Council and University Highland & Islands West Highland College, with many and varied local friends and supporters.

Festival tickets can sell out in advance particularly for the popular nights.

The Festival attracts approaching 1500 people over the 5 days and takes place each February in and around the town of Fort William.

Festival organisers – The Highland Mountain Culture Association Limited, is a not-for-profit organisation, whose aim is to promote the understanding and appreciation of the world’s mountain places and people, by creating opportunities for people of all ages to share their mountain experiences, ideas and visions. To showcase these ideals, it stages annually a programme of events within the Lochaber area, called The Fort William Mountain Festival. The Festival is organised by a dynamic Organising Committee, all volunteers, made up of a team of hard working local outdoor enthusiasts.

The Outdoor Capital of the UK is Lochaber Chamber of Commerce’s tourism brand, promoting adventure for all!  The Chamber publicises, sponsors and promotes Fort William and Lochaber as the best place in the UK for everyone to experience the outdoors; with a view to developing local jobs and wealth and encouraging sustainable economic growth. This is done through a range of collaborative marketing initiatives and activities.  The organisation currently has a wide range of member businesses ranging from accommodation, food and drink and activity providers to non-tourism focused businesses who support the aims of the Lochaber Chamber of Commerce and acknowledge that tourism is crucial to the local economy. Many of these businesses are SMEs and by pulling resources and working as a team the Lochaber Chamber of Commerce achieves the positive results that individually the members couldn’t otherwise reach. The Chamber also produces the Outdoor Capital of the UK website, the go to site for local events, outdoor activities and visitor accommodation in the area.  www.outdoorcapital.co.uk / www.lochaberchamber.co.uk.

The prestigious Scottish Awards for Excellence in Mountain Culture recognise the achievements of inspiring individuals and their outstanding contributions to Scotland’s outdoor culture. In 2021 The Scottish Award for Excellence in Mountain Culture was presented to Dave Morris, who has devoted most of his life to protecting and promoting access to the wild landscapes of Scotland and The Scottish Youth Award for Excellence in Mountain Culture was presented to Mikayla Parton. Mikayla epitomises these winning principles perfectly. Her meteoric rise to the top of the international downhill mountain bike race scene placed her fifth at the 2020 Mountain Bike World Championships. Her raw talent, constant dedicated training, motivation determined her success.
