Brothers are joining arms to raise money for Epilepsy Scotland by walking all the way from Arbroath to the centre of Glasgow.

James Chisholm and his brother-in-law, James Reid, are walking approximately 110 miles to raise awareness and money for a charity close to their hearts.

Mr Chisholm said: “Both my son and my nephew are epileptic and I have been wanting to do something to raise money for a while.

“We have been in the gym regularly to train and have done a lot of walking in preparation.”

Mr Chisholm expects the journey to take three days.

Without an exact plan for each leg of the walk the pair are going to carry extra equipment with them just in case.

“We are going to go along and see what happens, if we need to camp we will have things with us.”

The walkers will finish at Buchanan Bus Station, Glasgow, on May 9.
