Friends from Seil and Luing are finalising their training as they prepare to follow in the footsteps of one of Scotland’s most famous folklore figures, raising money for charity in the process.

Willie Munro, Tracy White and Alison Young are taking part in the 2021 Rob Roy Mighty Hike in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support on Saturday August 28.

‘Usually there’d be a big coffee morning on Seil for the charity, but that’s not happening this year because of the pandemic, so although our hike isn’t instead of it, we’re hoping it will help give a bit of a boost to funds for the amazing work Macmillan does,’ said Willie.

‘The cause is close to our hearts as our families have been affected by cancer over the years,’ he added.

The route will take them on foot from Callander to Killin with a number of pit stops on the way.

The trio, who are putting themselves through their paces in training for the event, hope to raise £750.
