Provenance

Irvine Butterfield was a hillwalker, photographer, author, conservationist and friend of The scottish Mountain Heritage Collection. He donated lots of nice things in his will when he passed away in May 2009 - this ice axe was one of them - thanks Irvine.He used this jacket when renovating the bothy 'Dibidil' on the island of Rhum - we're sure he used it elsewhere too! He produced a wee book about the project which we have in the collection. 40 years later (2010) the bothy is still maintained by the Mountain Bothies Association and has been enjoyed by thousands of outdoor folk since its resurrection by Irvine and his volunteers in 1970.
