Round Britain walker ticks off Arran on trip

A man who is walking round the entire coastline of Britain and Ireland visited Arran last week.

Alex Ellis-Roswell, 24, walked round the island as part of his 9,500-mile, fouryear non-stop walk round the coastline raising funds for the RNLI – and he isn’t even half way there yet.

But 24-year-old Alex is determined to finish the journey he started back on August 3, 2014, when he left his hometown in Margate, Kent, to begin his epic walk. So far Alex has walked 4,500 miles and raised over £24,000 for the RNLI and he was given a warm welcome during the four days he walked round the island last week. He arrived last Tuesday and was given overnight accommodation at the Pierhead Tavern in Lamlash before embarking on his walk.
