30 mile trek in mem­ory of Les­lie

The Oban Times - - Community News -

RE­CENTLY, Lorna McDon­ald and her son, Iain, com­pleted a chal­leng­ing 30-mile trek in mem­ory of their fa­ther and grand­fa­ther, Les­lie Ser­vant.

The walk started at Bridge of Orchy Ho­tel and con­tin­ued through Glen Kin­glas to fin­ish at In­ver­awe, where Les­lie had lived for al­most 50 years with his wife, Jessie.

It was also the fam­ily home of Lorna and her broth­ers.

It took a gru­elling eight and a half hours to com­plete the strength-sap­ping jour­ney, with the intrepid pair hav­ing to en­dure tor­ren­tial rain, hail and wind, which even­tu­ally eased af­ter 15 miles.

The pair were met at the end of their trek at In­ver­awe Shop by proud fam­ily mem­bers to celebrate.

The chal­lenge, in hon­our of Les­lie, was also a fundraiser for the Stroke As­so­ci­a­tion.

And the to­tal cur­rently sits at £960.
