93 Islands of Scotland Challenge

 Doug Kerr

 As many of you will be aware, veteran befriender Doug Kerr is currently embarking on a  unique Scottish island hop, visiting all 93 of our inhabitated islands in order to climb their highest peak. As well as providing a personal challenge, Doug is also hoping that the three year long adventure will raise a substantial amount of money for three of his favourite charities – Mary’s Meals, Rotary International and Dumfries and Galloway Befriending Project.

 Doug explains : “This challenge will see me visiting 93 islands across Scotland. This ranges from small inlet islands of Loch Lomond to the rugged terrain of Mull. Each island has it’s own story and history and I am looking forward to learning more about each one I visit. Having lived in Scotland for the majority of my life I have already visited some of the islands but there will be a number that will be new to me.”

Future plans:

You can follow Doug’s progress on www.93islandsofscotland.wordpress.com  Meanwhile, he would be delighted if anyone would like to join him on any of the walks.  If you are interested please contact him by email on douglas.kerr@care4free.net
