A team of walkers from the West Coast conquered the Caledonian Challenge on 14/15 June taking on 54 miles in 24 hours to raise money for Foundation Scotland.

Jackie Robertson of Knoydart House and her team, the ‘Knoydart Challengers’ (Kirsten Harris, Drew Harris, and Andy Kent) crossed the Finish Line at Strathfillan in 23 hours and 22 minutes having raised an incredible £3156.

Team Leader Jackie said, “We’re a bunch of forty-somethings who wanted to put our limits to the test, and thought ‘it’s now or never!"

“We enjoyed some amazing training walks before the event which included scaling the incredible Knoydart Munros and indulged in some serious compeed, jelly babies and flapjacks along the way!

“We’re so appreciative for all the generous support we have received from family and friends. Knowing that all the money we’ve raised will help support local charities was a real incentive, and helped spur us on those last few miles!”

Head of Events, Fraser Lennox said, “We were delighted to welcome a local team from Knoydart onto the Caledonian Challenge this year. We would like to congratulate Jacqui, Kirsten, Drew and Andy on their incredible achievement not only in conquering a staggering physical and mental challenge, but in doing so raising a fantastic sum of money which will help support community groups and charities throughout Scotland."

The trail begins at Gairlochy, north of Fort William, and finishes at Strathfillan, South of Tyndrum, taking in majestic views of Ben Nevis, Glencoe and Buachaille Etive Mor along the way.
