Ian McInnes of Carr-Bridge Trekking Centre, one of the long standing TRSS member centres, died suddenly at home on Sunday 16th December. His funeral will be held at Carr-Bridge Parish Church at 12 noon on Friday 21st December, followed by burial at Carr-Bridge Cemetery. One of the old school, Ian, who was a very experienced horseman, opened the trekking centre with his late wife when trekking was becoming popular. As trekking and the tourism industry began to change with health and safety and legislation becoming more and more involved, Ian had to adapt to stay in business. Despite having to remain indoors for the last couple of years on oxygen, Ian still ran the business from his kitchen with the help of Gillian Sutherland, a loyal and competent staff member who has been with Ian for many years. He still kept an eye on what was happening in the yard and was determined to keep the trekking running. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this sad time and we hope his grandson will be taking up the reins and continuing the trekking tradition from Ellan House.
