William A. Fowler, Donald D. Clayton and Fred Hoyle stand in the parking lot (next to Clayton's red Volkswagen) at Loch Duich Hotel, Wester Ross, Scotland in August 1967. The Eilean Donan castle on Loch Duich can be glimpsed between Fowler and Clayton. This occasion was the first joint climbing trip in Scotland by these three friends. Such trips became a frequent and important part of the golden years for nuclear astrophysics at IOTA (1967-72).
