A CHARITY walk across Perthshire and Angus will raise money for soldiers, the Prince's Trust and several local causes.

The Cateran Yomp, a 52-mile hike starting and finishing in Blairgowrie, Perthshire, will take place on June 14 and 15.

As an alternative to the gold 52-mile hike, people can raise money for serving and former soldiers and their families by walking 22 miles (bronze route) or 36.5 miles (silver). The trail leads yompers through Kirkmichael, Spittal of Glenshee and Kirkton of Glenisla, and entry to the event is £80 per person.

David Fox-Pitt, director of WildFox Events, added: "This year's Yomp is set to be our biggest yet."
