The coast of Scotland is amazing in terms of its environment and length - with its twisting, convoluted shape and myriad of islands, there is a great deal of coastline to consider. It is estimated that 60% of the total UK coastline lies within Scotland. This represents around 6000 miles of coast.
My name is Duncan Leith and I have been a long distance cyclist for the past 25 years. This year I’m taking on a challenge cycle the roads of the Scottish coast…maybe not the 6000 miles but a thousand plus. I have chosen to raise some money for the wonderful charity Kiran’s Trust at the same time. (For more info about Kiran’s Trust go to www.kiranstrust.org) In the past I have completed various cycle routes:
Land’s End to John O’ Groats 3 times
Cuba end to end
The tour of Corsica
Atlantic to Mediterranean across the Pyrenees.
Tour of Thailand.
For more than 30 years I wrote prolifically for the comics Beano, Dandy, Beezer, Topper, as well as the ever popular Christmas Annuals. I am now retired and when not in the saddle I’m writing books or painting.
Thanks in advance to my local pub, The Larachmhor, in Pittenweem, for pledging their support.
