Spruce-up day for Scot­land’s peaks

The Sunday Post (Dundee) - - Opinion -

Bri­tain’s tallest moun­tain – and for the first time other Scot­tish peaks – are to be cleaned-up by an army of vol­un­teers to­day to re­move rub­bish left be­hind by walk­ers.

The spruce-up of 4411-feet high Ben Ne­vis is part of a com­bined ef­fort to tidy Scot­land’s, Wales’s and Eng­land’s three high­est peaks.

The Real 3 Peaks Chal­lenge takes place on Ben Ne­vis, Snow­don in Wales and Scafell Pike in Eng­land.

The event has in the past re­moved 1.8 tonnes of lit­ter from the pop­u­lar moun­tains.

This year, along­side the “Big 3” peaks, Lochna­gar, Cairn­gorm, Ben Mac­dui, Ben Lomond, Goat Fell on Ar­ran and two ar­eas of The Peak Dis­trict, will also be cleaned.
