A retired Army major has brought his Tintanic challenge to Scotland as he continues his bid to row 100 miles around the country.
“Major Mick” Michael Stanley completed a previous 100-mile rowing challenge at 2mph twice a week along the Chichester Canal in December 2020, raising more than £44,000 for his local hospice.
The 80-year-old, from West Wittering, West Sussex, then sold his original Tintanic boat for £480 for charity.
On Friday, he rowed along the Kyle of Sutherland, the northernmost part of his trip.
He told PA: “It was a wonderful day with clean air, blue skies, deep brown peaty water and no-one to be seen. A magical row in the most beautiful countryside one could find.”
Mr Stanley, who served in The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards for 35 years, used his previous venture to raise £44,000 for the St Wilfrid’s Hospice in Bosham, West Sussex, and is now collecting funds for Alzheimer’s Research UK.
