Murdo Fraser: Rewilding can be done while still supporting jobs

Last week I climbed my 199th Munro, Sgurr Nan Each, in the Fannichs in Wester Ross. I had hoped to make my tally over 200, but facing horizontal rain and high winds on adjoining Sgurr Breac, along with my climbing companions took the prudent decision to turn back around 2,500ft. My double century will have to wait for another day.
