Stu’s Band of Brothers is a group of sixteen mainly sixty-something men, formed to raise funds for Prostate Cancer UK, following the passing of one of our friends in September 2021. Our aim was to walk the West Highland Way, a distance of approximately 96 miles over some of the most beautiful and mountainous terrain in the UK, over six days in May 2022.
The name of our Mission – The 1,000 Years Hike – derives from the sum total of our ages.
We travelled from across the world; from Scotland, England, Switzerland, Canada and Singapore. Few of us had the opportunity for regular walking in this kind of environment, although some Brothers are experienced walkers and a couple had previously completed the West Highland Way. It was undoubtedly be a challenge, more for some than others, as we had to admit we are no longer in the first flush of youth. You can view our individual profiles here.
