Two London firefighters are to take to the water for a monster of a charity challenge.
Chris Luscombe, from Wandsworth fire station, will attempt to paddle the length of Loch Ness in a kayak with fellow crew member Simon Stanton to raise money for the Fire Fighters Charity.
The 26 mile distance is estimated to be further than that from Dover to France.
The pair will leave Fort Augustus at the southern end of Loch Ness and head north east towards Inverness next Sunday, only stopping for a quick visit to the world famous Urquhart Castle and a tour of the Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition, home of the “Loch Ness Monster” story.
Chris and Simon are being supported by volunteer crew members at RNLI Loch Ness, two of whom are also fire fighters.
