Cross-Scotland walk for charity

A CROSS-SCOTLAND walk with a difference is being planned for September 8 to 21.

In aid of Macmillan Cancer Support, it will start at Dunnottar Castle and finish at Dunvegan Castle, Isle of Skye. It is organised by Lesley Thompson, whose mother died in October after an eight-year battle with breast cancer. Lesley said: “We received amazing support and assistance from Macmillan Cancer Support.”

Lesley’s mum could trace her family roots to the MacLeods of Skye, so the 220-mile Dunnottar to Dunvegan Daunder was devised. The route is split into day walks of around 13 – 15 miles, some more challenging than others, but all achievable for most people.

If you would like to take part in all or some of the days contact or call 07813 815 944. You can contact or
