I AM DOING A 110KM OPEN WATER SWIM ACROSS SCOTLAND USING THE GREAT GLEN WAY!

I HAVE FINISHED!

Finally this swim has been completed (15/7/12). After last years attempt, I tried again this year, and it is now done! The swim took 8 days, and it included loch ness, loch lochy, loch oich, loch Dochfour, river ness, river Oich, and the river Lochy. This is definatly the hardest thing I have ever done! The water temperature ranged from 7 degrees C to 12 degrees!

Thank you so so much for all your donations, and patience for me to complete the swim! I cant beleieve its now over, but so pleased! The support from everybody has been incredible, and the motivation to comlete it came from the money raised for such a great charity.

Thank you so so much!
