Elected committee members for year April 2024 – April 2025

David Matthews

Keen on hillwalking, running (flat or hills), scrambling, winter/summer climbing, cycling (on and off-road), kayaking, skiing, snowboarding, swimming, as well as photographing and videoing all these activities.

Heinke Pulhorn

I can’t decide whether I like the sea or the mountains best – luckily, in Scotland I can enjoy both. At the rate I am going, I will be 116 by the time I compleat the Munros….

Lyndsey Lauder

General Secretary
I enjoy hillwalking and recently got back into rock climbing; it’s exhilarating and pushes me out of my comfort zone. DMC has offered me amazing new opportunities and I’ve met some incredible people!

Andrew Holmes

I just love being out in the mountains. Coming back in the dark just means you’ve made the most of the day, right?

Ruth Taylor

Meets Secretary
I enjoy pretty much any activity that involves being outdoors but throughout my life, and wherever I have been, walking has been my consistent source of pleasure.

Elana Kantko

Assistant Meets Secretary

Iain Gilbert

Membership Secretary
An all round mountaineer who has enjoyed the challenges offered by the Scottish hills since childhood, and is delighted to share the enthusiasm with others!

Paul Higginson

Social Secretary
I love being outside in wild places, surrounded by the birds and the bees… or whatever insect life hasn’t yet been wiped from the face of the planet – except midges of course!

Allan McCulloch

Digital Officer & Founding member
Love pretty much everything involving mountains from hillwalking to falling through glaciers! I like mixing it up with a bit of bagging, climbing, skiing and biking. If it ends with a good pint, even happier!

Appointed committee members and activity reps for year April 2024 – April 2025

Jon Bowyer

Keeper of the Constitution & Founding member
I find the mountains are at their most beautiful in winter, and exploring them on skis is my main passion. But summer hillwalking, scrambling & Munro bagging are also great fun – apart from pesky midges that is! 🙂

Further will be confirmed shortly
