  Tom Weir dies - Saturday, July 08, 2006

Tom Weir - a true legend
The outdoor community received sad news yesterday when it was announced that Tom Weir, a true pioneer of Scotland's wild places, had died. Those who watched Weir's Way will remember how inspiring this great man was and how passionately he spoke of the remote places we all love so much. As you would expect, the BBC website has been inundated with tributes. Mrs Weir also paid a touching tribute to her husband:
He was a great man, my lifelong soulmate and I adored him. His health had been failing and in a way this was a release for him because he had lost the power of his legs and couldn't go out and explore the outdoors he loved and lived for.
The funeral will be held at Kilmaronock Parish Church on Friday 14th July at 2pm.
