An agricultural haulier from Houston, Renfrewshire, is on an epic journey in his trusty tractor to raise funds for three charities.

Robert’s route.

Robert Wilson is driving from his home village to Kirkwall on the Orkney Isles and back in a John Deere 6135r in just seven days.

Having started yesterday, Wednesday, April 13 he plans to have covered the 700-mile route by Wednesday April 20 and, all being well, will travel through Lochaber on his way back – stopping in Fort William for the night on Monday April 18.

The Tractor Crawl is in aid of the Beatson Cancer Charity, MND Scotland and Calum’s Cabin and Robert will be collecting funds along the way through various towns and villages en route.

Updates will be posted on his Facebook event page while donations can me made at Robert’s Tractor Crawl to Kirkwall (and back) Give as you Live page.
