Five peaks challenge offers golden incentive

A free dram is the extra incentive on offer to those managing the majority of a hill challenge in the upcoming Harris Walking Festival, something that may get some hurrying to put their hiking boots on.

The event runs from September 24th to October 1st and includes the Harris Five Peaks Challenge, with anyone managing to climb three of them qualifying for a glass of whisky from the Harris Hotel in Tarbert.

An Clisheam is the island's highest peak at 799 m (2,621 ft), while the other hills on the list are Tiogra (679 m/2,228 ft), Toddun (528 m/1,732 ft), Beinn Dubh (506 m/1,660 ft) and Rioneabhal (460 m/1,509 ft).

Each summit has a collection of stamps and those collecting three or more will be able to present these at the bar to claim their liquid prize.

Last year, Ramblers Scotland Director Dave Morris said the island should follow Loch Lomond and Trossachs and the Cairngorms in becoming a national park.
