Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

In August last year I retired as CEO of Aberdeen Foyer, a
role I was proud to hold from April 1996. It was immensely rewarding and fulfilling, as well as presenting quite a few challenges. To mark my retirement I set myself a challenge to walk across Scotland from my home in Ballogie, to visit my sister in Lochgilphead. I had originally planned my walk in Sept/Oct last year, but I injured myself on a hill walk so it was postponed untill 2019. I have now set aside time to undertake my challenge from the 21st May. I have planned a route that will take me through some of the remotest parts of Scotland, so will involve me camping en route. I plan to complete the 180 mile walk over 11days, walking between 15 – 20 miles per day.

So where might you come in?

I’d like to make a parting contribution to Aberdeen Foyer so
am seeking donations to support the work of this great organisation
( So please help me help the Foyer by pledging your support through my Just Giving page.

For those who might want to join in part of my walk I have a day by day plan and will attempt to keep it updated, should I be delayed or indeed cover more ground than planned in any day. Please email me on for more information.
