Love hiking in Scotland? Want to challenge yourself in 2020 whilst raising money to tackle loneliness and isolation? 

Then join Team Carr Gomm with this challenge, which will see you follow the footsteps of Scotland's notorious outlaw, Rob Roy MacGregor. 

"I was motivated to fundraise because I’m aware of the negative impact of loneliness, and have seen the benefits of Carr Gomm's projects in my own community.”

[Alex, a Team Carr Gomm fundraiser]

What is this in aid of?

Team Carr Gomm is seeking to raise £60,000 via a team of at least 100 people, all doing something extraordinary, taking on a challenge and breaking down barriers. Its ultimate goal is to build connections; by encouraging people to take part in the campaign itself, and by raising money to fund activities and projects across Scotland which are bringing people together to tackle loneliness and isolation.

And what better way to get active and social than by trekking the Rob Roy Way with a group of like-minded challenge enthusiasts? Take on the adventure and ask those you know to sponsor you to complete it. 

About the challenge

Brought to you by Contours Walking Holidays and organised by leading professionals in this area, the Rob Roy Way has been developed to start in Drymen and finish in Pitlochry some 76 miles later. 

Prepare for a Scottish walking trail that is packed with stunning views and remarkable history. There are new experiences and sights at every turn as you uncover the story of Rob Roy and the path he once walked. 

The adventure can be booked any time between March and October. Contours Walking Holidays have created a number of packages that reflect the ability of the walkers and help spread out the miles over a larger period of time if needed. 

We would suggest a fundraising target of £500 but every little helps! And we will be here to support you every step of the way with your fundraising efforts.
