Duo climb Cairnsmore eight times for charity

Climbing Cairnsmore once is tough enough but climbing it eight times in the space of 26 hours takes guts and stamina.

Obviously, these are qualities in abundance in Newton Stewart’s finest charity fundraisers Mark Hannay and Stuart Templeton who competed their ‘Cairnsmoreathon’ last weekend, raising over £1000 for Yorkhill Children’s Hospital in Glasgow in the process.

The doughty duo set off on Saturday evening and competed their last climb on the Sunday evening, getting soaked on the way three times! The pair want to express their sincere thanks to everybody who sponsored them and either walked with them or supported them throughout the day and night.
