E.Comp Ian McTaggart of Keystone Chapter, No. 7911 has alway dreamt of doing this wonderful 96 mile walk.
Now that he is retired and looking for more adventure, he can when completed, tick it off his bucket list.
Whilst at the same time keep fit and active, plus raising money for a great and worthy cause in The 2020 Festival.
Highland Way is arguably the most famous walking route in Scotland.
Steeped in history, this wonderful long distance path takes you north, from the bustling commuter town of Milngavie (pronounced mul-guy), to the Highland tourist hub of Fort William, nestled in the shadow of Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis (1,344 metres).
From the rolling East Dunbartonshire countryside and the waterside paths of Loch Lomond, to the remote, wide open spaces of Rannoch Moor and the stunning mountain range of Glencoe; the variety of landscapes along the way makes this one of Scotland’s premier walking routes.
The walk also incorporates some steep hills and descents.
Ian is very appreciative to all that sponsor him and is very much looking forward to the challenge.
