A team from Understanding Recruitment will be running, cycling, and kayaking 105 miles from Nairn on the west coast, to Glencoe in the east.

Company executive Paul Marks said: “The Highland terrain and weather, especially in September, is going to make for an incredibly challenging, yet epic journey.

“After the 56 miles that day one presents us, sleeping in a small tent at Fort Augustus is really going to add to the difficulty that day 2 will bring.

“Our team of volunteers have really upped their training regimes in preparation for this epic challenge, adding to their lunch time PT sessions with some additional evening and weekend cardio training.”

The challenge is intended to raise £5,000 for Cancer Research UK.

Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
