A team lead by Sandy and Fiona McEwen from William Johnston & Company Limited will attempt to scale the three  highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales over three successive days on the weekend of 8/9/10 September to raise funds for the UKGSA’s nominated charity, Macmillan Cancer Support.

Starting in Fort William on Friday 9 September, the team will tackle Ben Nevis,  Scotland and the UK’s highest mountain at over 4,400 feet (1,345 metres), before they drive south to climb Scafell Pike.

Scafell Pike, the loftiest peak in England, rises 3,209 feet (978 meters) over the Lake District National Park, Cumbria and provides spectacular views of the surrounding lakes and coast. On descending the group head for another National Park, Snowdonia in Wales.

Mount Snowdon will be tackled on the Sunday and at 3,560 feet (1,085meters)  represents the highest mountain challenge in Wales.

If successful, the team will accomplish over 11,163 feet of walking and climbing over the three days.
