Mark Beaumont to visit Islay and Jura

Islay Events written in stencil

On Thursday 28/Jul/2016 anyone on Islay might be lucky enough to spot a very interesting visitor. The visitor in question is Scottish presenter, broadcaster, cyclist and adventurer (hope that captures it all) Mark Beaumont. He has some interesting plans, which should give you plenty of opportunities to spot him and more importantly cheer him on:

He will be running the Paps of Jura, cycling from Jura to Port Ellen, running the Three Distilleries Pathway and Kayaking Ardbeg to Port Ellen. Yes, all in one day. Part of a 12 day adventure ‘Wild About Argyll’.

Of course his adventure is being documented online: To start with you can visit Argyll & the Isles where you can read about Wild About Argyll with Mark Beaumont. Then you might want to look at Twitter, where the hashtag #WildAboutArgyll will be a good starting point. Also the following three accounts will be worth a follow and look:

There should be pictures and clips throughout the day, so watch out for them. I understand there will also be a special short film commissioned by the Islay & Jura Tourism & Marketing Group filmed by three cameramen to look forward to.

I think all that remains is to wish Mark (and of course all his support) a great, exciting, fabulous and successful day on Islay and Jura.

Opening up the discussion. Have your say:
