The inauspicious memorial to Dougal Haston in Currie:
Haston grew up climbing on the railway embankments along the Water of Leith and went on to become one of the world's foremost alpinists, putting up new routes on the Eigerwand (the direct route during which his partner died) and Annapurna in the Himalaya. Along with Doug Scott, he was one of the first Britons to summit Everest. When not climbing he was a hard drinking party animal. World famous among climbers but hardly known in Scotland. He was killed by an avalanche while skiing in Switzerland in 1977.
