We would like to invite you to join us for the premiere of ‘The Place of the Gaels’, an exploration of Scotland’s landscape, culture and people. From the climbers and skiers who live for Scottish winter to the musicians and craftspeople who make their living in the highlands.
Scotland has always been at the heart of Rab’s work with many of our products inspired by the demanding conditions of Scottish winter climbing. With the Rab family now extending far beyond these isles, in January 2017 we invited athletes and staff from our US Team to come and experience the notorious Scottish winter. This film, produced by Coldhouse Collective, catalogues their journey through the country as they discover that the weather is just as fickle, the people just as welcoming and the climbing just as demanding as they’d always heard.
The event will feature a Q&A with Greg Boswell and Kev Shields, the Rab athletes who acted as guides for the US Team, a meal of pie and peas (vegetarian option available) and live music from Scottish band Hò-rò. Oh, and there will be a few free drinks on us too – just make sure you bring a down to keep warm!
