CHARITY WaterAid are calling on walkers on the Isle of Arran to don their boots and take on two of Scotland's finest peaks to raise vital funds for some of the world's poorest people.
On Saturday, June 2012 the charity's brand new mountain challenge event, the WaterAid 200, aims to put a team on the top of Goatfell, Cir Mhor and 198 others among the best hills and mountains in the UK and Ireland, as chosen by WaterAid supporters.
The charity hope to raise £200,000 to improve access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene in Nepal, where people in remote rural villages can face arduous treks along treacherous paths to find water which is often dirty and unsafe to drink.
