  1. Hi Newsroom

    The missing chap you mention is relation of ours, 74 yo James (Jimmy) Bailly from Balerno. Sadly he was found dead on friday night. Jane and I want to thank everyone involved in the search. Jimmy loved the mountains and a Munro was just another day out for him

    • This is even sadder news because it brings this event home sharply.
      All those who love the mountains as your relation, Jimmy Bailly, clearly did will probably think that this is not a bad way to go. And it isn’t.But it’s tough on those left to respond to it. Everyone will be thinking of you and your family.
