Walking enthusiasts are being urged to sign up to an annual event responsible for raising over £250,000 for national, international and local charities in the last ten years.
The Six Harbour Walk along the Moray coastline from Portsoy to Buckie has saw 600 people complete the 16-mile event in 2013 – now organisers are hoping they can top that when the 2014 event gets under way on May 4.
One of those organising the event is the president of the Buckie Rotary Club, Bill Greig, who said: “We are a little bit behind on the numbers at the moment – but there is still time for people to become involved.”
Charities set to benefit from the event this year are the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation and the British Tinnitus Association, along with Sirumalargal – a Scottish charity that helps impoverished children in India.
The walk from Portsoy takes in some of the region’s most spectacular coast scenery as it passes through the harbours at Portsoy, Sandend, Cullen, Portknockie, Findochty and finally Buckie.
