This is the man who pulled an anvil up Goatfell. Big Davy Ballantyne completed his marathon challenge in brilliant sunshine on Sunday afternoon. It took him, with the help of Fraser Aitchison, 26 days to pull the 18-and-a-half stone anvil from Corrie to the top of the 2,866 mountain to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). Anyone can still donate on www.justgiving.com/Davy-Ballantyne.
