PH’s Martin Butcher took part in yesterday’s Devil O’ The Highlands 42 Mile Ultra along the northern section of the West Highland Way towards Fort William.

Martin clocked 6 hours 39 minutes and 9 seconds, placing 13th overall in what also incorporated the Scottish Trails Ultra Championship.


The scenic route through Rannoch Moor, along Glencoe, up The Devil’s Staircase and over Lairig Mor showcases Scotland well and is a favourite of Martin’s. This was the third of three races he has run over the West Highland Way this year making up the ‘Triple Crown’. As in the previous two races the winner was Garioch’s Rob Sinclair.

Well done to Martin, enjoy your recovery and thanks to Gordon Donnachie for the photos.
