THIS year’s Tar­bet Chal­lenge in aid of Macmil­lan Can­cer Sup­port will be held on Sun­day Au­gust 14.

The event con­sists of a seven-mile walk along the shores of Loch Mo­rar, ar­riv­ing at the re­mote town­ship of Tar­bet on Loch Ne­vis.

The Western Isles pas­sen­ger ferry will then pick ev­ery­one up, re­turn­ing to Mal­laig af­ter a cruise down the loch.

On ar­rival at the pier in Mal­laig, par­tic­i­pants will be met by piper Nathan Ritchie who will lead the way to the Ch­lachain Bar where fish sup­pers and a pint will be pro­vided. There will be a ceilidh af­ter­wards fea­tur­ing folk band Mara­time.

In 2015, the event raised £1,390.15 which or­gan­is­ers are hop­ing to sur­pass this year.

Any­one wish­ing to take part should con­tact mags­ or visit ‘Tar­bet Chal­lenge’ on Face­book.
