I've never walked this far before. I've nearly recovered from a tendon injury a few weeks ago, so whilst I'm optimistic I'll be up to it physically, it's the psychological challenge that may be most interesting.
But it's not just all about me. I'm using the walk to raise money for two great charities whose work should be appreciated and supported by everyone who values wild land: Venture Trust and Scottish Wild Land Group. You can read more about these charities and why I've chosen to support them here.
So, this is a call for donations. Anything you can spare will be much appreciated. Times are hard, for many young people and for our wild land, and the work of these two organisations is needed more than ever. Please consider splitting your donation: you can donate to Scottish Wild Land Group here, and to Venture Trust here. I hope you feel moved to contribute! Remember, every penny goes to the two charities. My expenses in preparing for this escapade are entirely my own business!
