We Volunteer to Save Lives


Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

We have chosen to attempt  Big Hex - Ascending and descending 6 classic routes on 3 of Scotland's best know mountain ranges in under 36hrs - to push our limits and raise much needed funds for the amazing guys and girls that are part of Scotland's Mountain Rescue. 

These volunteers who literally risk their lives to help those in trouble, lost or tragically killed on (and off) Scotland's Mountains need your support to buy the equipment and maintain vehicles and buildings necessary to operate one of the most professional "amateur" organisations on the planet.

The routes... GULP!
