FOLK often get ‘high’ during a pub crawl ...but not QUITE as high as a group of intrepid Clydesdale villagers will be getting in the next few days.

In fact their ‘crawl’ – in aid of charity rather than for pleasure – could even see them enter the record books!

And it won’t involve one single drop of drink. Well, not much anyway.

On Friday and Saturday a small team drawn from the neighbouring villages of Leadhills and Wanlockhead will be mounting a 122-mile trek from the highest pub in England to the counterpart record-holding premises in Scotland, their very own ‘local’ The Wanlockhead Inn.

Their expedition is being sponsored to raise money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society, the event being inspired by Leadhills former firefighter Callum McKelvey who is suffering from the early stages of the condition.

For more on this story pick up a copy of the Carluke and Lanark Gazette which is in the shops now.
