Members of Highland Rugby Football Club walked 100 miles for charity to mark the club’s 100th anniversary and raise money for charity.

A total of 17 people took part and helped raise £10,000 for Mikeysline, Alzheimer Scotland, My Name’5 Doddie and the club itself.

The money will help the club continue to promote and bring the game of rugby to Highland communities.

The Centenary Bike Ride was organized by Julian Innes, who said: “I’m so proud of everyone who took part.

“We were a real mix of ages and abilities but it was great fun and a great way to raise money for our designated charities and of course to mark our centenary.”

The latest cohort of cyclists returned to Highland RFC’s home of Canal Park in Inverness on Friday just in time to join the rest of the club at the Inverness Caledonian Thistle FC stadium to watch the match between Glasgow Warriors and Ayrshire Bulls – this was also held as part of Highland RFC’s centenary celebrations.
