He was nominated because of his work in mountain rescue and training climbers, and for setting up the Scottish Mountaineering Heritage Collection.

Mr Tighe will be presented with the accolade at the Fort William Mountain Festival next month.

The award was set up to recognise those who have dedicated their lives to working in Scotland's mountains.
