Help us honour two mountaineering heroes

We are seeking to commemorate the climbing achievements of Isle of Skye native, John Mackenzie, and his friend and mountaineering pioneer, Norman Collie with a bronze sculpture of both men to be erected at Sligachan on Skye. We have two primary aims:

  • To gain public appreciation of the achievements made by Collie and Mackenzie during their pioneering climbs of the Skye Cuillin.
  • To promote the value and connection of the local landscape, wild places and the Gaelic culture.

The scultpure will form part of a wider interpretation area that aims to tell visitors about Skye’s spectacular Cuillin mountain range and the two men’s achievements.
