Hugh McClymont toasts the memory of Jay Burns at the Criffel summit

Junior stock worker Jay Burns died in January following a car crash.

Around 20 family and friends climbed Criffel to raise money for the head injuries unit at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.

Hugh’s team also organised a collection at Crichton and Barony for the cause.

He said: “We miss the wee man terribly, but I was pleased to be able to help raise some money for this very worthy cause and to raise a beer to our absent friend when I reached the summit.”
