Journalists bemused by piano on Ben Nevis

A piano has been “discovered” on top of Ben Nevis. The Guardian is reporting it’s a mystery how it got there over 20 years ago. They link to the John Muir Trust press release stating it’s a mystery how it got there.

They obviously didn’t Google “Ben Nevis Piano” or they’d have found the John Muir Trust press release from 2000 stating a piano had been pushed up the mountain. Or indeed the claim on moutainwalks.co.uk that it was Kenneth Campbell of Ardgay, Ross-shire that did it, to raise money for charity.

It’s an amazing what the internet as a medium can do for journalism. But it doesn’t seem to be being used for research.

The pictures are breathtaking though.
