Iconic anvil


I was interested to see the recent letter in the Banner concerning the fate of the anvil which Davy Ballantyne hauled up to the summit of Goatfell to raise funds for his diabetic daughter.

It does seem a shame that the actual iconic symbolic object, the anvil itself, is now apparently lying discarded by the wayside. However, I can also understand the viewpoint of those charged with the custody of the Goatfell environment, that if they allowed this monument to be erected then other people might start following suit and carrying other objects up Goatfell for charity, and might rightly expect to see their efforts also memorialised at the summit. Where would it end?
