Thank you to Bob Aitken for telling me a little about William Lamond Howie, one of the members of the Howie family that I previously knew very little about.

Bob wrote:

William Lamond Howie

"My hobby is researching biographical information on members of the Scottish Mountaineering Club. Idly Googling, I came across your mention of William Lamond Howie above.

Lamond Howie  -  he doesn't seem to have used the 'William' much  -   was a member of the SMC, joining the Club in 1892, just three years after it was formed.

He contributed a good number of hill photos to the SMC Journal.
