Scotland’s oldest firm of agricultural advisors and rural land agents, Davidson & Robertson Rural, have scaled new heights for charity.

The firm, which has an office in Forfar, completed their version of the Five Peaks Challenge, climbing the highest point near each of their offices in Scotland and Cumbria.

The series of climbs was organised to raise awareness of the Craig Hodgkinson Trust, a Scottish charity formed from the untimely passing of Craig, who died aged 27 whilst playing in a rugby match due to an undiagnosed heart condition.

The trust provides defibrillators and training to sporting grounds across Scotland.

So far, 157 defibrillators have been distributed, and DRR’s Five Peak Challenge raised £1000 for the cause.

Cat Law was the first summit on the list and after a brief photo amongst the clouds it was time to get back to the cars and head to the Pentland Hills for the next climb.

Rhona Booth from the Forfar office said: “Despite the fact the challenge meant a very early start, it was worth it for such an important charity.

“We were delighted to be able to raise awareness for the cause, and hopefully the DRR five peaks challenge will become an annual event!”
