Programme for Owen’s Eight Day Trek Across Arran

Owen Gosling outlines his plans for his 8 day walk around the Isle of Arran in Scotland:

“Walking long distances is always easier when you are in a team with other people. Everyone encourages each other to keep going and the company and humour takes you away from the walk distracting each other from the tough bits. That is why this challenge is quite difficult, I will be completely alone on my walk around the island and will not have the comfort of a supporting team to boost my morale, so this is as much a mental challenge as it is a physical challenge. Many in the elderly community suffer from the mental challenge of loneliness so it is important that this challenge highly reflects that issue and the massive and deadly effect it has on our elders. If you would like to make a difference, supporting the elderly and bridging the loneliness gap with Age Concern please:
