'Based in Aberdeen, the Club was founded in 1887 and is the oldest and one of the largest hillwalking and climbing club in Scotland ... Its members have from time to time included a number of climbers of repute, but most are simply hillwalkers with interests ranging from cross-country walks, through more strenuous hillwalking (and unashamed Munro-bagging), to serious rock and ice-climbing ... Indoor Meets usually take the form of a slide presentation, and are held about 6 times a year between September or October and March. All members, and guests, are welcome to come along. Indoor meets are an ideal event to meet Club members if you are interested in finding out more about the Club or other Club events.'

Aberdeen' Crime Writing Festival  'Granite Noir is inspired by the incredible popularity of crime fiction in all its forms, by the fantastic contribution that Scottish writers make, by our love affair with Nordic Noir, on the page and on screen, and most of all inspired by Aberdeen, which is the perfect backdrop for the festival – steeped in history, atmospheric, quirky and with a strong sense of place. It’s our pleasure to bring you a fantastic programme of noir writing in unusual places and spaces across the city, from our lively festival hub at the Lemon Tree to the newly restored Cowdray Hall and the atmospheric St Nicholas Kirk. We can’t wait to explore the darkness within and around us with fascinating authors from near and far.'  Normally held Late February.

'The two countries may have had an intimate and enduring set of relationships over two millennia and more but the impact of these relationships has been virtually ignored by academic researchers in the nineteenth and for much of the twentieth centuries. Each has generally been examined through its relationship with England, and it is only in the last twenty years or so that researchers have realised a better understanding of both Ireland and Scotland could be achieved by exploring their relationship with each other.'
