It was with great sadness that we heard of the death of Rhona Weir, who - along with her husband Tom Weir - was a long-standing supporter of the Trust. The following excerpt is taken from a Journal article in 2012: 

“We all thought that Rhona was such an inspiration – what a lady! It was fantastic to listen to Rhona’s stories about her and Tom; however we were also fortunate to learn about Rhona herself. Being fond of adventures in the mountains myself, I particularly enjoyed hearing about her adventures with the Scottish Ladies Climbing Club..."

....As well as sharing stories of her life with the group, Rhona shared a few words of wisdom: “live every day to the fullest, treat each day like it is the first day of the rest of your life”.
