The Madness of Team Hopeless-Ness
No, this isn't another post about the Republican Presidential campaign.
Loch Ness is one of the most gorgeous places on earth, as far as I am concerned.
Most people choose to visit it either by boat from Inverness, bus or car. They amble down to Drumnadrochit, maybe take in the Loch Ness Monster exhibition, stop off at Urquhart Castle to take some photos, continue on to Fort Augustus and then wend their way back through the more barren, single track roads on the other side. They might decide to stop off and see the dramatic Falls of Foyers before heading back to Inverness through the picturesque village of Dores.
This is not how the heroes of this heartwarming tale are going to do it on 13th September. Fraser, Gavin, Matt and Graeme have branded themselves Team Hopeless Ness. They are going to take part in the Loch Ness Monster Challenge. This involves each of them taking a turn at running and cycling their way round the Loch. Have a look at the site and watch the stunning fly through video of the route.
Seriously, they are doing all of this to raise money for Alzheimer's Scotland, so please give lots of money to sponsor them by clicking on this link.
