Cairngorms Women Contributions

Cairngorms Women Contributions

Through the research Simone has walked, talked and received email surveys with numerous women about their experiences of walking and mountaineering in the Cairngorms. From the most experiences mountaineers and rescuers, the annual holiday walkers to female glider pilots, these conversations inform a growing picture and language of women’s specific experiences of this unique plateau. These conversations and insights offer the spectrum of experiences and language that will support the development and sense of future performance works in response and within the area.

Surveys and transcriptions of conversations are currently being built and updates to this page. More coming soon!
