Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service Family Support Trust is the oldest Fire & Rescue charity in the UK, offering assistance to Service personnel and retired firefighters and their families whenever required. I am asking for donations, however small, to help this charity continue to provide a range of support services to those who need it most. There are some incredible stories of the work they have done and are doing on their website here:
...and this is a taste of what I'm about to do to try and raise some money for them...
On 28th March 2019 I will begin walking the Cape Wrath Trail, regarded as the most demanding of Britain's long-distance hikes. It is not an officially recognised UK National Trail; the route connects a variety of paths, passes and valleys, picking a largely unmarked way through some of Scotland's most remote and unforgiving areas.
The Trail has many variations along its length. It traditionally begins from the Camusnagaul ferry in Fort William, and traces a winding and challenging path to reach the most northwesterly point of mainland Britain, the lighthouse at Cape Wrath. Borne out of many traditional drovers' tracks, the route often follows historical rights of way that date back hundreds of years; these once provided the only means for crofters to move themselves and their animals around the rugged landscape of the Scottish Highlands. During the trek I will cover around 230 miles, over the course of 2-3 weeks. I will be wild camping and using bothies where available.
