The Highland Cross 2018

The Highland Cross 2018

I entered and completed my first Highland Cross alongside two friends, Gemma and Heather, we stuck together and completed this tough local duathlon in a time of 7.5 hours and we raised £945! The Highland Cross is a 50 mile duathlon comprising of 20 miles by foot, followed by 30 miles by bike from the west to the east of Scotland. It attracts hundreds of participants per year of all athletic capabilities, starting at 18 years old and with no maximum age limit. It is an all terrain route starting in Kintail, snaking through the beautiful Scottish west coast, through Affric and finishing in Beauly – just outside the Campbell’s front door. It is a spectacular day to observe the determination and endurance of all those involved.

The Highland Cross started out as a Charity Challenge in 1983 – back then, titled “The Midsummer Madathon”. The aim was for 3 teams to cross from Loch Duich to Glen Affric, a total of 60 miles to raise money for the Highland Scanner Appeal. The challenge quickly grew and has become a historic route to test your fitness abilities, all while raising money for notably worthy causes. Today, 795 people in teams of 3 enter the race each year, with all sponsors donated to help local causes, those disadvantaged by disability, in ill health or in social need.

This year, the funds raised are being shared between 5 charities: Blythswood Care, Highland Hospice, MS Therapy Centre, Skye and Lochalsh Mental Health Association, and the Abriachan Forest Trust. If you would like to contribute towards these causes, you can do so through the Tough Mamma’s Virgin Giving page linked here – we are grateful for any donation!

Well done to all those who participated! If you are interested in learning more about The Highland Cross, you can visit their website or Facebook page.

One of the oldest established tailoring specialists in the Highlands, Campbells of Beauly, established in 1858, have been granted the Royal Warrant for supply of tailored goods to Her Majesty the Queen.

The workshop in Beauly has for many years been making suits for the Balmoral Estate and the company has held two previous Royal Warrants since the 1960’s. In particular, those for the late HRH The Prince of Wales (later The Duke of Windsor) as well as HRH Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother.

The grantee, Mr James Sugden OBE, has worked in the industry for over 50 years and Campbell’s was acquired by his Son and Daughter in law John and Nicola Sugden in 2013 from the Campbell family. As well as a thriving tailoring workshop the business boasts a unique retail emporium specialising in knitwear and tweed garments, many of which are made in Scotland and the UK.

John Sugden, Director said ‘Nicola and I are absolutely delighted for all the team here at Campbell’s as this is such a wonderful reward for all their hard work and attention to detail.
