Two students from the Highlands have raised over £5,000 in aid of Birchwood Highland through a sponsored cycle from Land’s End to John O’ Groats.

Jamie Begg and Chris Dacre, both 20, and from Glenuig and Acharacle, respectively, set off from Land's End on the 10th of August and began cycling northwards, camping in various locations and staying with friends and family over the period of a fortnight, before reaching John O' Groat's last Wednesday – completing the challenge two days earlier than they had initially expected. 

Covering around 80 miles per day, the trip wasn't without its trials and tribulations!

Jamie and Chris received donations along the way, but the majority of their fundraising took place via their JustGiving page which currently sits at a total of £5,019.57.
