A GROUP of former Royal Marine Commandos completed a gruelling trek to raise money for charity.

On October 9, Patrick O’Hara, Kingsley Reeve, Chic Grant and Dave Barton took on the might of three munros, with the added burden of a 55kg Shelterbox.

The group tackled part of the White Mounth plateau route which took them over Tolmount (958m), Broad Cairn (998m) and Cairn Bannoch (1012m) in seven hours and 36 minutes.

Chic Grant said: “The four of us had to start early doors, and there was some hard slogging, but overall it was what we call a good yomp.”

Their efforts raised a total of £1,200 which was split evenly and presented to Arbroath Rotary and the East of Scotland branch of the RMA.
