A retired biology teacher took his grandson up Schiehallion for the young boy’s first climb recently. But for Richard Paul, his summit success of the famous Perthshire Munro has now toppled 100 times.

Richard was a teacher in biology, geology and computing at the now closed Rannoch School for 25 years and also spent a decade at Pitlochry High School.

His early life studying zoology at Glasgow University and entomology (moths) at Imperial College and the British Natural History Museum made him a passionate conservationist and he is keen to pass this on.He brought his eight-year-old grandson Rory to the summit of Schiehallion for the first time last week, to show him not just the view but also the distinctive rocks and to check for new plant species.
