Owen Gosling Smashes 8 Day Solo Trek Challenge for Age Concern Colchester

“So… I DID IT!!, the first documented solo self sufficient*, Circumnavigation of the isle of Arran. And gosh was it a challenge… but I had a blast and it was the adventure of a lifetime exploring Scotland in miniature.

I got into Brodick to the start of the walk and checked in at The Douglas Hotel Arran Bunk House and everyone in the town seemed to recognise me from the challenge, thank you all so much for such an amazing finish. 

Dinner at the Douglas hotel was gorgeous and now I am relaxing for the evening.

This challenge has been gnarly, and although I was lonely for 7 days, the elderly can be lonely for years and then many die from lonliness. My challenge was nothing compared to theirs, so please.
