LAST DAY TOMORROW!  @you_the_island_and_i

What a stunning day today was, I was so sad to say goodbye to Kildonan,  my Favourite area on the island, but onward I pushed to whiting bay, must I say this island has a way of putting Teslas and other desirable vehicles in the way of my scenic spots... Thank you Elon! Very cool Then from whiting bay headed upstream toward the glenashdale Falls and visited the Giants Graves. These Neolithic, pre civilisation, human structures are still very much a mystery to us as to how they were constructed by our ancient ancestors. But we know from archeological studies that it was used as a chamber for bones after ravens picked the flesh off dead bodies, Then at whiting bay I was putting up the borrowed tent... and the pole snapped... a metal pole snapped... so yeah. I'm cursed all was sorted out in the end and the tent was returned, I beasted myself from whiting bay to lamlash where I am now staying the night,

I was upset that I didnt get to wild camp this evening overlooking the holy isle, but at least the challenge isnt over and the issue could be resolved with ease. Again. More evidence why contingency plans are Soo important. So tomorrow is the last day of the walk. And I will have completed the challenge around the island. So tonight is the last night you can get your name on the flag by donating so that you can see your name at the finish line. If everyone who sees this post this evening donates just £5 we can easily raise 12,000 pounds doubling are target in just one day, that's not too much to donate at all. So please, because I've beasted myself, and documented, and stood in awe at the beauty of this island.  Donate tonight󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 If you would like to support Age Concern through this challenge please⬇️

Volunteer day was a success. We created a vibrant display board for the service users, staff and visitors. We also tidied up the garden and finally played some music and had a dance with the service users to end the day. It was overall a great experience and it was amazing to see the integration between the elderly and the youth.

We all understand that we are living longer, and we are likely to spend more years as frails, elderly people who can't work. We also recognize that the wonderful advances in medicine also come with wonderful price tags. Those are things you cant budget around.

Awesome effort Owen @you_the_island_and_i

A new day presented itself and a new day I tackled... 2 Days I tackled???
Well I am amazed by the support and love the entire community has shown in Arran and across the world really, messeges from Spain, America, and even My own home town, this challenge would bot have continued if it wasnt for you guys helping me out, be it lending a tent, offering shelter or just stopping and briefly giving encouragement,  it all adds up and sends me the extra mile, 8.5 extra miles to be precise. I set off after 12:30 today after borrowing a tent from Brodick from a lovely follower ( who I haven't asked for permission to mention) and I was worried I wouldn't get to Imichar point in time, well I got there far too early so I pressed on all the way along the coast looking for somewhere with shelter from sea gusts to sleep and I couldnt find any. So I kept going and now I'm in Blackwaterfoot (where I am supposed to be tomorrow) so what I will most likely do is shuffle the days around a bit to accommodate for that (blackwaterfoot-kildonan), (kildonan-Whiting bay), (Whiting bay - Brodick) I honestly now dont remember much about beasting myself 17 miles flat out from lochranza to Blackwaterfoot probably just because I was concentrating on walking so much,  but I did take photos so thank god for that, I hope you really enjoy them and we are gonna smash the rest of this challenge,  you, the island and I will prevail 󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 You are all guardian Angels

Another day done, sannox to lochranza,  the weather today has been lovely but now it is like torrential downpour and Gail's. Hopefully all holds up.

The path was good to me today, Laggen cottage was stunning and the Geology was pure gold. Sand dunes to river deposits and James Hutton's famous unconformity that proved his theory that the earth was alot older than the bible suggested. 
My legs and shoulders feel significantly better than yesterday after Goatfell so hopefully by tomorrow I would have fully recovered and able to walk with less breaks  Also I had a major issue in that one of the battery packs had died, and I need these to document the challenge. So what i will have to do is stop at a campsite in blackwaterfoot to recharge my single battery pack and that should keep me going until I'm back at Brodick on Wednesday.

Just wanted to give a huge shout out to @you_the_island_and_i who is walking the #ArranCoastalWay this week! Owen is walking solo around the island, with all his kit on his back raising funds for Age Concern Colchester. He finished day one yesterday conquering the mighty Goat Fell in rain, wind and cloud. Today he walks from Sannox to Lochranza. Having walked the coastal way too, I know how tough it can be in all weather. Give him a follow and watch his adventurous and challenging journey! Also, if you feel you'd like to donate a small something to his cause, I'm sure that would be appreciated

Great start Owen  @you_the_island_and_i
WOW! today was really breathtaking, the day started off with the realisation that I wouldn't get up Goatfell due to the weather... and I thought nahhh I'm hear so I'm gonna do it anyway. So I did. Take all my kit up Goatfell in a storm, alone . that's probably not a first but I really dont recommend doing it with as much kit or alone, it is a challenge because it is gnarly  Getting up the mountain felt difficult and time consuming but it was nothing compared to getting down, each false step on a wet rock could see me fall on my back.󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 On the way down the clouds cleared and evidence presented itself that Arran can reward people for determination,  and what a view

I also met many people around every corner who knew I was coming because they followed the challenge, a big thank you to you all, those who took pictures I would love to share them, you are all stars  Overall Goatfell chewed me up and spat me out today, I'm feeling physically punished by the mountain. But I did it and will fly off like a rocket tomorrow

As the ages advances, most elderly fall sick not because of the lack of immunity, but because of the lack of sympathy, compassion and friendship which they need the most.

Owen writes:⠀
We are focusing on the amazing work Age Concern does in the elderly community and what you can do to support them. 2.2 Million people aged over 75 suffer from chronic loneliness. Loneliness is a massive issue in society, it affects the young and the old. But as friendship circles deteriorate and family shrinks as we get older, it becomes a deadly issue, so serious that many die of loneliness. Humans are social animals and whether we are introverted or extroverted we all require a little bit of love and attention as we get older, and this is exactly what the Age Concern befriending service does. With countless activity centres up and down the British isles, Age Concern are at the cutting edge of bridging the loneliness gap and bringing the elderly community together, providing services of advice, funding and always a chat and cup of tea!⠀

Be sure to read the article by the Gazette and Essex county standard today about the challenge starting August 15th, a really lovely write up summing up the challenge⠀

1-Day is all that's left on the countdown to the challenge. This feels like the end of a long promotional career but it's really the  beginning of a long week tackling the elements and the island .󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 The forecast is looking brilliant for tomorrow soni should be able to get some lively photos of the island from the top of the ferry, on friday we have a strong storm system coming in so that will make climbing Goatfell a challenge in 65mph winds , I will definitely have to tie the tent down firm that night

Then for the rest of the challenge it is brightening up as the tail of the storm thins out, and it should be sunny for the longest day 󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 I am now at the mercy of mother nature, may she be kind! I hope you are excited because it's going to be a rough but exciting  week ahead 󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 If you would like to support Age Concern through this challenge please:⬇️ DONATE

2-Days to go!! , I spent alot of lastnight foinh some packing and realised just how quickly 180ltrs of rucksack gets filled up with water bottles and food. Very little room for much else in there. Today we are focussing on the amazing work Age Concern does in the elderly community and what you can do to support them. 2.2 Million people aged over 75 suffer from chronic lonliness.  Lonliness is a massive issue in society, it effects the young and the old. But as friendship circles deteriorate and family shrinks as we get older, it becomes a deadly issue , so serious that many die of lonliness.󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Humans are social animals and whether we are introverted or extroverted we all require a little bit of love and attention as we get older, and this is exactly what the Age Concern befriending service does. With countless activity centres up and down the british isles, Age Concern are at the cutting edge of bridging the lonliness gap and bringing the elderly community together, providing services of advice, funding and allways a chat and cup of tea! Age Concern needs your support and Donations. Without the support of people like you Age Concern may struggle to keep their activity centers open, give support to a grieving family, run community events and bridge the lonliness gap. Please, your donation means everything to age concern, Myself and this challenge. Make a difference, invest in your future... because you never know, one day you may need the support of Age Concern Please ⬇️ -DONATE -SHARE

3-Days to go, have been getting as much last minute food as possible today so it can be packed away ready, 

Today we are focussing on the 8th and final day of the challenge , this day is a more relaxed but I imagine a quite stressful day later on too. 

On the last day I will be spending the morning in Brodick and then getting the ferry to ardrossan,  and then the train back to Colchester.󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 After walking all that way the nature of the UK rail network I'm sure will be the most challenging part of this 8 day expedition

4-Days until the challenge begins. Not long to go! We are expected to reach the follower quota by some point this evening do please do whatever you can to share our content and page on your stories and timelines so that we can reach the 1,200 supporter quota Today we are focussing on the 7th and second-to-last day of the challenge between Whiting bay and Brodick. This was originally going to be the last day with me jumping straight on a ferry in Brodick then a train to colchester,  but I needed an insurance day should anything happen on my way around the island. So I complete the walk on the 7th day. But I dont actually complete the challenge until I get back on the ferry the next morning The very nature of this means that I can explore Brodicks foods , bars and attractions without the limitations of the walk on the 7th evening and 8th morning. 

So during this day I will be walking through lamlash, the most populated area on the island. Feom which I can explain the Holy island sill off the coast. 󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Once I get to @brodickcastle the walk has officially finished but the challenge has not, this means I am out of the conditions of the challenge. So I will be enjoying the @arranicecream and speaking to as many people as possible. 

If you are on the island and would like to pop by and say hello this is the time to do so, I would really love that after the walk so do let me know

Then I will be camping the night in Brodick

5-Days to go until the challenge begins, thank you so much to all of our new followers , we are so close to the 1,200 supporter quota so please over the next 2 days try as hard as you can to share our content and page so that we can reach that quota and give you an oppertunity to have your name become a permanent part of the challenge. To place your name in the history books Today we are highlighting the 6th day of the challenge and the LONGEST day of the challenge. I am especially excited for this day but know that it will most likely be the most gruelling day. 

Beginning at blackwaterfoot I follow the coast south to sliddery where I will attempt to find some more of the hand beast footprints,  these footprints trail all along the coast to kildonan so I will try to find them at various points along the way󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Then I will also visit the small, picturesque village of lagg which has a stunning new distillery within it, the last time I saw @laggwhisky the distillery it was under construction so I am excited at the oppertunity to investigate further

From lagg I then follow a path to meet the coast again and I follow the coast all the way to the magnificent Dykes of Kildonan. These Igneous intrusions protrude into the sea making for a stunning photo, also I will take a look at Kildonan castle on the way back 

Then on the final stretch back north to Whiting bay I will visit the Giants Graves, which are mysterious large stone structures that folklore hints at being ancient Graves of giants , potentially evidence of primitive civilisation among gigantapithicus in north west europe, there is no evidence of bones however so the site is a mystery  And the sun descends over the topography I will then pitch up in Whiting bay for the night

6-Days to go!, this time next week I will be ascending Goatfell, the highest peak on the island

Today we are highlighting what you can expect feom the 5th day of the challenge between Imichar Point and Blackwaterfoot.󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 This day bring with you it one of the amazing mysteries of the island, in Machrie Moor. Here there lies a sizable megalith of standing stones with various earthworks within proximity of the site. I will be spending alot of time taking photos of these and exploring them. Also along the coast is the kings cave and Hand beast footprints. If the weather conditions and tide are right I will attempt to find them, if not I will have to find an alternative route 

Further down the coast on this walk there is a large sill which has over time eroded to form a cliff face at Dune fort. Here there are standing stones and evidence of an ancient settlement that I will reveal 

As the day of walking draws to a close I will eventually find myself at Blackwaterfoot.  Here I will be staying for the night so I will have to find somewhere adequate to pitch up for the night

Thank you so much to everyone supporting this challenge and the cause behind it.

7-Days to go, that's only 1 week away!!, and the time has flown by at light speed. I honestly cant thank everyone enough for the amazing support so far. Today we are highlighting what to expect from the 4th day of the challenge, beginning at Lochranza and ending at Imichar Point. The day is 15.3KM in total and is primarily following the coast from the North down to the East of the island.󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 I will likely check out Lochranza Castle again today depending on the weather of the previous day, and will then proceed to the rubha and whitefarland burials. I hope to learn more about them on my travels but in the meantime they will make fantastic navigation waypoints. Then as I get closer to Imichar  the topography changes from jagged and sharp peaks to well rounded and smooth slopes,  this due to glacial melt that occured after the ice age, as the melt migrated it eroded the peaks on the southern half making them seem less harsh relative to the North. I will present evidence of this on the challenge. Then once I get to Imichar Point i will find somewhere suitable to pitch up for the night If you are as excited for the challenge as I am and want to make a difference by supporting Age Concern through this challenge, please:⬇️ DONATE

8-Days to go until 'You, Me And The Island' thank you so much to everyone who has followed this story on the run up, its only going to get better. Today we focus on the third day of the challenge. The stretch of walk between Sannox and Lochranza, this may end up being one of my favourite days because I am really looking forward to getting to Lochranza.󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 This day will be 13.3KM long and has will just be hand railing the north eastern coast of the island. Along the way I will make sure to highlight the dykes in Sannox, the abandoned cottage, the caves and Lochranza Castle and distillery. This will be the only night I will have to stay in a campsite as the sheep in Lochranza are chances and I would not want to find one in my tent in the morning, so that is the only time throuoght the entire challenge that the rules on wildcamping must be lifted for safety purposes.  I really hope that you are enjoying the run up to the challenge as much as I am and are looking forward to the challenge in the following weeks. Please be sure to let me know as feedback is allways welcome

9-Days until the challenge, and today we are highlighting the second day of the challenge. Although it is the second day of the challenge it is my first day of walking around the island. This day is 18km including altitude gain and descent and should take exactly 4 hours of walking, this does not however take into account the fact that I will most likely be walking slower as i ascend Goatfell and also that i will probably want to stop along the way to take in the view and highlight afew features, The first feature I will be covering and a large part of the day is reaching the summit of Goatfell,  the weather is not looking great so this could be potentially very dangerous, so I will tread with care. I will also be highlighting corrie and sannox features such as the old jetty and standing stones. I will then set down for the evening in sannox and I imagine I will heavily reflect on the amazing adventure climbing to the top of Goatfell that day, I doubt the effects of lonliness will have kicked in by this point but I will not take that fir granted as I'm sure it will haunt me on the other side of the island.󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Please if you are looking forward to seeing this challenge unfold and want to make a difference through supporting Age Concern please:⬇️ DONATE

10-Days to go!! Today we are going to highlight the First day for the challenge, the 15th August. 
This day is mostly travelling from Colchester to Arran but I will stop along the way to show points of interest and give info on them. I especially hope the weather is nice on the ferry trip across to the island as the view is stunning

Also the 15th is my A-Levels Resulys day so I should be receiving them as I get on the train, I'm super excited to see what I get and hopefully that will start the challenge off on a high note. Once I get to Arran I will want to find somewhere adequate to sleep the night so I will most likely set up camp along the coastal path and cook some dinner , (the best thing being that I can eat nice food that night because once its eaten I dont have to carry it) so I will have a propper feast that night in prep for the following days.󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 If you are as excited for this challenge as I am and you want to make a significant difference in supporting age concern through this challenge then please:⬇️ DONATE

11-Days to go until I take on the island, it's kind of insane this challenge really. I mean the challenge is kinda dope in a group, and stopping at shops ro get food and supplies. But this is actually kinda mental. And I am 100% at the mercy of nature and my abillity to defy it. I dont really know if that's what makes me excited for the challenge or if I'm excited for the feeling of when I have finished the challenge. No matter the weather or how easy/difficult I find the challenge, that does bot take any weight away from the amazing experience to be had, and the purpose of the challenge itself.󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 If I manage to raise awareness for Age Concern, the fantastic achievements of young people and the Joy's of the great outdoors, raising £6000 for age concern. Then the real challenge will have been complete, because from my perspective,  that is far more difficult than walking around the isle of Arran alone.
