Chef set for Kilimanjaro trek
Bookmark and Share
A chef at the famous Gleneagles hotel in Scotland is set to climb Kilimanjaro for charity.

Andrew Fairlie has said he plans to undertake the mission in early 2011 and dish up a Burn's Night special dish of haggis, neeps and tatties when he reaches the summit of Africa's highest mountain.

The culinary specialist - who has fought a successful cancer battle following treatment on a brain tumour - will undertake the trek in aid of the Hospitality Industry Trust.

As well as using plenty of hiking equipment on his Tanzanian trek, Mr Fairlie will also need to get some men's outdoor clothing and men's walking boots in 2010, as he has pledged to train for the event by climbing a mountain every month next year.

The 19,340 ft mountain is the largest free-standing peak in the world and those who attempt to climb it have to overcome problems of high altitude and contrasting temperatures between day and night, with many not managing to complete the ascent.
