Edinburgh seems to have a disproportionate amount of mountaineers for a large UK city, perhaps thanks to a thriving outdoor scene generally in Scotland, so its no surprise that it hosts one of the UK’s biggest mountain film festivals.

This year the festival has a fantastic line-up, including films and talks from Jonny Dawes, Catherine Destivelle and Al Humphreys. Talks and films are being shown at the George Square Lecture Theatre at Edinburgh University (travel details here), from the 6th to the 9th of October, in the mornings, afternoons and evenings.

Members of the public also have the chance (still!) to submit photos for the photography competition, along with films for the festival.

To get you in the mood, here is a little taster of what you can expect…
