Commencing on May 26 , Ian Campbell of Edinburgh will run between Callanias on Lewis and Cairnpapple in the Bathgate Hills in West Lothian covering a distance of 260 miles in 9 days to raise money for Leukaemia Research .

Leukaemia research do enormous good in the fight against cancer , if you would like to support me on this journey , please visit "

Lundin Links (Standing Stones) — Fieldnotes

As a Hill Runner who has raced up Largo Law on several occasions, the Lundin Links stones hold a special place for me.
The site must have held special significance and offered a place of worship toward Largo Law and North Berwick Law at the other side of the Firth of Forth. Isolated hills which oversee the mouth of the firth of forth holding a special place. The shape of the stones was quite awesome with one in particular being gravity defiying - a construction of superb engineering.I hope to get back at sunset in June to see what the impact is.
As the stones are situated on the middle of a fairway at the golf course it is worth asking permission 1st - although we were met with a knowing smile. Two groups as different as golfers and pre-historians sharing something adds to the vibe.
