27 Mar Spring into the Mountains – Ben Ledi 15th April
Join us to celebrate the half way point in The Mountains & The People project and show how much our mountains mean to you.
This informal walk up Ben Ledi will provide an opportunity for you to enjoy a landmark of the Trossachs and one of the paths recently repaired by the project. You can find out first hand from those involved in conserving our mountains what it takes to repair our mountain paths and the fun that can be had on the way.
The event will also mark the launch of a fundraising campaign Mend our Mountains: Make one Million which is looking to raise £100,000 to improve two iconic mountain paths on Ben Vane in Loch Lomond and Beinn a’Ghlo in the Cairngorms.
**PRIZE DRAW** win from a selection of limited edition Gore-Tex clothing including walking shoes and jackets.
