Arran activists joined thousands of people who took part in the school climate strike march in Glasgow last Friday ahead of Saturday’s major rally in the city.

The Arran contingent were joined on their trip to Glasgow by Dr Mark Hayden, a doctor at Great Ormond St Children’s Hospital in London, who cycled to COP26 to draw attention to the effect of climate change on his patients – especially children.

He spent the night on Arran on his way home.


Thousands of pupils from across Scotland taking part in the school strike marched from Kelvingrove Park to the city centre.

The event was organised by Fridays for Future Scotland, a group founded by young people inspired by the activism of Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg, who also attended the march.
