Taking on the 7 Hills of Edinburgh for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust

After successfully summitting Ben Nevis earlier this year, we have decided to take on a challenge closer to home to raise important funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

On Friday 4th November 2022, our team will be taking on the 7 Hills Challenge in Edinburgh! This will be a tough but super rewarding walk, and we hope to raise at least £500 towards helping those affected by Cystic Fibrosis live a life unlimited. At 27km and 700 metres of climbing, it’s no walk in the (Holyrood) Park. 

The Cystic Fibrosis Trust aims to meet this goal by assisting those living with Cystic Fibrosis to be mentally well, physically well and fulfilled. We are proud to support them to achieve these aims.

The Seven Hills Challenge

Edinburgh residents will know that we feel simultaneously blessed and cursed by its lumpy topology, but climbing each of Edinburgh’s 7 major hills provides a different perspective on the city. 

This is the view from the top of Blackford Hill, looking back across the city towards Arthur's Seat (the first hill we will have climbed!)

And here's the view out to the Castle, with Corstorphine Hill in the background, from Salisbury Crags, which run adjacent to Arthur's Seat.

The route in full:

Our full route will start at Arthur’s Seat and from there the team will head over to Blackford Hill, Braid Hill, Craiglockhart Hill and Corstorphine Hill before heading back into the city centre to take in Castle Hill and a triumphant finish on Calton Hill.
