Rachel's Fling on Ben Nevis

On July 17 this year Rachel McLean will be attempting to carry out a sponsored Fling for Logan challenge.

Aiming high is nothing new for Rachel. A relatively late starter to Highland Dancing she rapidly progressed through the ranks to reach the peak in 2004 when she was crowned World Highland Dancing Champion.

However, this challenge will see Rachel climb to new heights - she has decided to climb Scotland's Highest Mountain - Ben Nevis - and plans to perform her Highland Fling on the summit!

Not content with miles to treck and hill to climb - she will need to carry her music and kilt outfit to the top with her.

You can follow Rachel's progess on the blog and sponsor her on the sponsor page.
