TWO grandads from Innerleithen are preparing to tackle the stunning Caledonia Way for charity.

Murray Charters, 66, and Denis Robson, 72, are set to take on the 234-mile cycle route from Campbeltown and up Scotland’s West Coast.

The duo are raising funds for the Scottish Association for Mental Health and riding are in memory of Murray’s son Jamie, whose loss three years ago was devastating for the family, and the wider community.

After five days in the saddle across road, trail and gravel they will roll into Inverness.

The ride will finish two days before World Suicide Prevention Day, which takes place each year on September 10, and aims to promote positive conversations about mental health.

In addition to raising funds for the cause, the pair are keen to reduce the stigma of talking about mental health, particularly among men.

The pair had hoped to raise £1,000, however with under a week to go before they set off on September 4, they have already surpassed that figure.
