Dunfermline Athletic

A Climb for Mary

Sunday, 27th Jun 2010

Climb one of Scotland’s most remote Munro’s and help raise funds for the Mary Leishman Foundation.

Dunfermline Heritage Trust is organising this fundraising event on behalf of the Mary Leishman Foundation that will climb Beinn Na Lap on the shore of Loch Ossian in the West Highlands.

A coach will leave Dunfermline at 8:30am from East End Park and travel up the A9 through Pitlochry via Dalwhinnie and ‘Monarch of the Glen’ country to Tulloch station just before Spean Bridge.

We will then board the West Highland Line train for a fifteen minute trip to Corrour railway station, the remotest stop on the UK rail network. The group will then ascend the Munro Bein Na Lap which has excellent views towards the hills in the West Highlands.

On descent, refreshments will be available back at Corrour railway station before we board the 6:30pm train taking us over Rannoch Moor to the coach waiting at Bridge of Orchy for the return journey to Dunfermline.

We will travel back by way of Callendar and should be back before 10:00pm.

To register for this wonderful day out, and help raise money for the Mary Leishman Foundation, all you have to do is fill in a registration form and pay a £25 booking fee. This booking fee will pay for the cost of the coach, your rail ticket to and from the Munro as well as a light lunch at Corrour railway station. All you have to do in addition is commit to raising a minimum of £100 sponsorship for the Mary Leishman Foundation.

Dunfermline legend Jim Leishman himself will be coming along on this trip. Jim will be accompanying the group to the top of the Munro.
