We give hope, courage and opportunity to people with sight loss in Scotland


Every hour in Scotland someone starts to lose their sight. 

Sight Scotland helps people with sight loss live fulfilling lives, reach their potential and continue to do the everyday things they love. Losing your sight can be scary but with the right support people and families can still take part in all the things they enjoy; playing sport, cooking meals, reading books! 

I am tackling a #SightForSight Challenge to raise money so that more people can be supported by the amazing work of Sight Scotland. 

I will be walking to, from, up, down, round 20 Edinburgh sights over 20 days (it will actually be more than 20 sights as some are next to each other!). It will be about 160 miles in total, all distances are to and from the sight. 

If you can I would very much appreciate any sponsorship you can manage! I'm sure my enthusiasm will take a few hits, especially during our dark, cold, wet (dreich) Scottish winter nights so any support is welcome.
