Storm on top of the Table, the Quiraing, North Skye, ca. 1970 (ID: HMB-796). A 35mm slide from the Hamish Brown Mountaineering and Scottish Photography Collection.

Hamish Brown, mountaineer and explorer, was the first person to climb all the Munros in one trip and under his own power. He has climbed the all Munros (Scottish mountains over 3000 feet (914.4m) high) multiple times, often accompanied by one or other of his dogs, Storm and Kitchy.

35mm film and slides were a very popular medium for photography in the 1950s to 1990s. Slides, producing a positive image, could be then placed in a projector and used for lectures and group viewings.
