We did the Caley Challenge!


I took part in the Caledonian Challenge at the weekend, as part of a Bloody Scotland team. It’s a 24-mile walk from Fort William to Glen Coe through some amazing hills and scenery. We did it to raise money for Foundation Scotland, a great charity working with local community groups across the country.

Our team finished in 8hrs 47mins, which was seventh out of 43 competing teams! My personal time was 8hrs 15mins, which was 33rd out of 205. The team was me, Chris Brookmyre, Matt Bendoris, Craig Robertson and Gordon Brown, with Shortlist journalists Mandy Pang and Dusan Indic, and Bloody Scotland PR guru Snow Irwin.

You can still donate here if you feel so inclined. Great time had by all, and precious few blisters. Cheers!
