Jennifer fulfils a heartfelt ambition

Milngavie woman Jennifer Wilson wanted to complete the whole length of the West Highland Way for many years - and has finally cracked it in ten days.

She and her friends made use of new transport links to stage a ten-day fundraising bid for the British Heart Foundation, with rest time after each stage to allow the hikers to recuperate.

She said: “It was quite a challenge to find ways to access each section but the Loch Lomond Cruises boats that are based at Tarbet were useful, as were the Scottish Citylink coaches and Scotrail trains.”
