Isle of Skye supports mountain rescuers

SkyeMunroChallenge 61

Isle of Skye has launched ‘The Isle of Skye Blended Scotch Whisky Munro Challenge’, a fundraising initiative for Scottish Mountain Rescue. The cause aims to encourage Scots of all ages and climbing abilities to climb one of the country’s 282 Munros, with all money raised going directly towards Scottish Mountain Rescue for new equipment, stretchers and avalanche training. Neil Boyd, UK Commercial Director for Ian Macleod Distillers, commented, “The inaugural ‘Isle of Skye Blended Scotch Whisky Munro Challenge’ is part of our landmark sponsorship of Scottish Mountain Rescue. Over 1000 volunteers deliver over 30,000 hours of their time so that we can all enjoy the mountains. It costs around £1.2m to run the charity every year with 70% of that money generated through fundraising alone so events like ours show how we can all help support Scottish Mountain Rescue.”
