Georgina Lepley Maclean has completed a gruelling 24 hour challenge by swimming one mile every hour in aid of four aquatic charities on Arran.

Arran’s coastal inhabitants and ship spotters were quick off the mark late last week when what appeared to be a large fishing vessel was spotted off the coast in Brodick and Lamlash within the South Arran Marine Protected Area and the Lamlash Bay No Take Zone.
