24-Days ho ho until 'You, The Island And I' commences and today we are focussing on steps. The other day we focussed on different paths challenges like this can go down but today's focuss is heavily on the steps required to get a challenge like this into place.󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 1️⃣The first step was planning a route and researching, finding as many research materials as possible and collecting them into one document.

2️⃣The second step was planning a route and daily agenda so that I had a plan in place when it came to operating the challenge, 
3️⃣The third step was producing and presenting a brief and casual but I formative brief to Age Concern.

4️⃣The fourth step was physically preparing myself for the challenge, building up muscle memory for long distance walking and slowly increasing the weight I'm carrying.

5️⃣The fifth step was launching the social media campaigns on Instagram and Facebook (soon Twitter during the challenge). This had to be timed not so late that people couldnt find the challenge in time and not to early that people lost interest.

6️⃣The sixth step was doing final prep and admin such as prepping the tent for rapid deployment, having all kit ready to be packed and testing the camera equipment as necessary.

The next and final step is to begin this challenge in 25-Days. I'm pretty excited to crack on with it and take on the island and its wonders but I must not get  carried away and must remember the importance of the cause and keep the donations at the front of my mind. Remember that you have an exciting oppertunity to get involved in this challenge which I will release once we reach 1200 followers. So do your best to share and recommend this challenge over the next 2 weeks so you can obtain this amazing oppertunity  If you would like to further support the challenge please:

25-days to go until the challenge begins, until I take on the never ending coast of Arran.󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 The last 24 hours was a bit of a wobbly one for me, alot of reflection on my personal development over the last 6 months. Exactly 6 months ago today I made the decision to do this challenge. I was in a pretty dier state of mind with a new year which was supposed to bring new exciting frontiers getting of to a flat and deflated start. To say I was satisfied with my personal situation at the time would be an overstatement. 

Many will know that last summer I took on the Nijmegen 100 mile March which was incredibly challenging for any indevidual but I was lucky to have a highly competent and honourable team alongside me to share the burden. So this year with my holiday to Tenerife scrapped pretty early in the year I decided to up the stakes.  I decided to push myself beyond what I believed possible alone. To find my true indevidual limits, and this is the challenge I came up with. The last six months has seen me build from scratch a fantastic and loving community of friends, redevelop my self confidence,  reinvest in my aspirations, tackle my A Level exams and begin the first steps into a promising and successful career. I am stronger now than ever before because of these obstacles I have overcome

Whilst all this has been going on and ME-V2.0.exe was booting up so was this challenge growing with me. Now with oy 25-Days to go I can feel all this hard work and dedication falling into place.

Thank you so much for everyone who has stuck by me and believed in me over the last six months, it has been a horrible challenge in itself, it has been testing and tiresome,  but you have all supported me this far and we are bow on the final straight to the challenge, So let's all smash this challenge together, YOU and I, and the ISLAND.

This photo is a side view of a Dyke extending out to sea. These features were formed during the caledonian oregeny as scodland came under immense pressure due to continental collision. I will be walking through kildonan on day 7.

26-Days to go until the challenge.  As it gets closer and closer I can feel the pressure and nerves rising, most people who have met me thinking a fairly confident person and that I handle pressure well but I'd say a more accurate understanding of the situation at hand is that I am incredibly talented at tricking you into thinking I am perfectly calm and confident, when underneath I am just as terrified if not more I am stunned and amazed that almost 900 people are interested in this challenge, actively viewing and interacting. This really helps with settling the pressure a bit because I know that all though I will be alone on the island, it could be horrible weather. The tide may be high at points bringing progress to a standstill, I may run out of food or pull a muscle. I will have everyone supporting my journey along the way and that will give me the grit and determination I need to just get on with the task at hand and press on positively.󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Many in the elderly community do suffer from issues I will encounter on my adventure. Isolation, lonliness,  lack of resources,  strict control over expenditure, maneuverability handicaps (rucksack simulation). These are all things I will experience and hopefully will encourage many in the elderly community who suffer too, to identify with and take up outdoor activity

This photo was taken at Corrie on the east side of the island and allways amazed me due to the calm and crystalline clear water. Lack of suspended sediment and silt around the island makes for beautifully clear and tropic like water. On a warm summers day it is easy to forget the unforgiving Scottish weather and imagine yourself on a Mediterranean coastline. I will be travelling through Corrie on the second day of the challenge.
I think this photo also represents the crystal clear aims of this challenge and how we gat reach those targets without metaphorical sediment clouding our vision. With an aim to raise awareness and funds for Age Concern, raise awareness for issues in the modern youth, to raise awareness for the great outdoors. That is incredibly clear to me

27-Days until the challenge commences,  this countdown is runny by quickly and we are running out of time to raise awareness for the challenge. Soon the challenge will have happened and then it will be a part of history. Dont let this monumental event fly past your grasp, hold it with poth hands as it comes by and make yourself a part of it, so that one day you can say I had a part to play in that challenge, I made a difference be it sharing content on your feed to gain the attention of more people, donating to Age concern via the link in the bio to help support the charity or even going out for a walk to enjoy nature. You can all do something and be a part of this challenge when it is written in the history books I have an oppertunity for ALL OF YOU to become a significant part of the challenge and to obtain this oppertunity you must help to boost the page followers on Facebook and Instagram to 1,200 followers. This will unlock your oppertunity in the challenge.󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 So be active and Donate, Share and follow today to reach this landmark This photo was taken on the stretch of road between Sannox and Lochranza emphasising just how barren and vast some of the areas on the island can be. This will have a massive impact on my morale positively because the sights are stunning but negatively because it will magnify the feeling of lonliness emphasising the importance of tackling lonliness in the elderly. 🤲

It also raises the question, when history is written what road will you take?? The road of positivity and fulfilment through generosity,  or the path of negativity giving up at the first pothole and turning back?⁉️ Whatever road you take, aslong as you have people beside you giving informative and productive directions they can help you to get to your designated destination. So if you want to keep people heading on the correct bearing, if you want to keep people in old age headed on the right road of positivity, Today please:

29-Days to go. In the coming days we will be focusing heavily on the big wheel behind the scenes that is Age Concern. A huge part of being able to pull of a challenge like this is the preparation involved behind the pictures. Hopefully I can lift that filter for you to gain a better insight over the coming days

I was first introduced to the pivotal role Age Concern has through Jean Robinson, my old Air Training Corps OC. When I initially came up with the idea in January to beast myself around the island for eight days I immediately saw the oppertunity to raise awareness and money to bridge the loneliness Gap in the elderly community. So I piled all my plans, documents and briefs over to the Veranda centre and told Jean all about this exciting adventure over Coffee. We decided that this would be a brilliant opportunity to promote the amazing work Age Concern does and to try to reach a wider and more varied audience.

I had 3 primary aims when I started this challenge:

1️⃣- to make people aware of Age Concern and the issues related with elderly lonliness raising £6000 for the charity. 2️⃣- to highlight the positivity amongst the younger generations  of today, rather than the negativity they are constantly covered in. 

3️⃣- to get people of all ages, experiences and abilities interested and excited to explore natures gifts, taking on their own challenging adventure. I hope I can inspire and encourage everyone possible to reflect on these 3 points and get out there and spread the word of this amazing beacon of hope. Will you go and embark on your own adventure? Are you currently undergoing your own challenge? Let me know by sharing your fantastic stories below⬇️ #isleofarran #ageconcern #walking #scotland #youtheislandandi #essex #walkingessex

Today Mark's 50 years since humanity's greatest voyage in history.‍ On this day 50 years ago, Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins sat waiting on Pad-39A ontop of the largest functioning ballistic missile, with an intentional collision course with the Moon

These 3 brave men, lead the whole of humanity on the greatest adventure,not because it was easy,but because it was hard These words by the the Inspiring President John.F Kennedy are words that I hold very close to this challenge. To You, The Island And I.  When I set about organising this challenge I decided to walk 105 lonely,  long and exhausting kilometres. To the top of the highest mountain on the island and do it in a set amount of time because it is a challenge. And the point of that being that it is not easy.󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 I do this not because I find walking easy, not because I enjoy the pain that walking for eight days straight brings, not because I have too much time for my own good. But because I want to prove that humanity still has that pioneering spirit those 3 great men had 50 years ago. That we are willing to blast into the unknown for the sake of others and not just ourselves. That young people bring a bright and prosperous future because of the positive things they do today. That nature is a fantastic gift that we must appreciate and explore. That the elderly community dont have to feel alone and forgotten. (The very generation that voyaged to this alien body). THAT YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! please make a difference today.

DONATE to Age Concern via the link in our Bio if you want to bridge the gap of lonliness in the elderly,󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 SHARE if you want to prove the positivity in young people and our wonderful nature.

With one month to go here is a reminder as to what 'You, The Island And I' is all about.󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 105KM, Eight Days, One Island -Please Support and check in with my challenge as I attempt to raise much needed funds for Age Concern by completing the first ever solo, self sufficient circumnavigation of The Island of Arran.󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 -In Great Britain 2.2 Million people aged over 75 are suffering from Chronic lonliness. Company is the one thing many take for granted and as we get older our circles of company will shrink. Age Concern looks to keep the fresh spirit flowing through the elderly in our community, bridging the gap of lonliness  -On the 15th of August I will set off and document my entire challenge around the Isle of Arran alone sharing the great sights the topography has to offer with you. -I have decided to go it alone in the attempt to encourage anyone of any age feeling lonely to get out there and get active.

31-Days to go, that's exactly a month until the challenge, originally I was supposed to be setting off on the challenge today but we have an entire extra month to raise support and attention to the challenge. Please let's make the most of this next month and raise as much awareness for Age Concern, Lonliness in the Elderly,  Young peoples positivity, human generosity,  and the great outdoors. Let's make a messege for the whole world as to just how positive people can be when they unite to support a cause.󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 This photo was taken of The Devils Punchbowl and shows its perfectly rounded bowl like peak. This was formed as the side of a huge volcano that's caldera collapsed in on itself in the tertiary period. Then during the quarternary period the ice age gauged out chunks of rock at rounded the peak giving the punchbowl it's current appearance. The punchbowl is such a sight that it has its own Whiskey named after itself by The Arran Malt🥃. I will be walking past the devils punchbowl on the second day of the challenge.󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 If you enjoy the content and want to support Age Concern and The Challenge please:

Just 32-Days to go on the countdown to the challenge, are you as excited as I am??, let me know!󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Thank you everyone for your ongoing support in this endevour, without you all I would know know the demand for a challenge of this magnitude or have an audience of active participants with such benevolence for Age Concern.󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 To all the many people that have donated allready thank you, we have a special oppertunity coming up for each of you but the challenge must reach 1,200 followers first, so be sure to spead the news to gain the oppertunity  This photo was taken in North Glen Sannox overlooking the dense woodland headed westward. Glen sannox was created in the landscape by mass uplift and rock formation in the caledonian oregeny , then the topography was carved away after the last great ice age when glaciers tore through the glen, creeping along as they melted gauging out great quantities of rock on their journey toward the lower lands. This is seen also on the island at the Devils punch bowl. I will be wild camping here on the second night of the challenge. Have you ever wild camped here at the glen before? what did you think?

This photo was taken in Corries old dismantled jetty on the east coast and shows just how clear the waters around Arran are.  This clear water is something we are not used to in Essex due to high levels of sedimentary suspension.
I will be walking through Corrie on the second day of the challenge.

Lou and I went to visit Trevor this evening. In case you don’t know, I have been matched up with him for companionship through Age Concern. He’s 92, mostly blind And lives alone. Incredible spirit of optimism and good humour.  We took the little doggy Coco with us, along with some dinner, tonight. I have to say, it is incredibly gratifying to see Trevor get some doggy cuddles.

Truly means the world all of the support and positive comments I have received. It keeps me going during the tough times, and certainly keeps me focused and committed each and every day.

This challenge isn’t about me, or the event it self. There are lots of great people achieving & challenging themselves everyday single day. Trying to become a better version of themselves. The most important element is about raising vital funds and awareness for 3 charities very close to my heart.

Fantastic workshop led by @ftillustrator working with Falmouth Age Concern group @falmouthartgallery this afternoon. We made clay labels responding to different textures, shapes and patterns looking closely at six paintings from Falmouth Art Gallery’s collection. Some members of the group also explored 3D labels in response to paintings.

38-Days to go until I step of that Brodick-bound ferry and what a fantastic feeling that will bring, to truly bridge the lonliness gap in the elderly and youth in one week. I really will need your help though to share as much as possible to raise as much awareness and donations as possible.  This challenge is no easy walk but that's the point of it, to challenge myself and even you watching it.󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 This photo was taken at Kildonan south of the island where I will be pacing through on the longest, most strenuous and 6th Day of the challenge.  Here you can really see the desert sandstone clearly providing geologists with evidence of contental drift, highlighting when the United kingdom was situated on the Tropics and a desert environment 

Please if you havent allready tell your friends and family about the challenge , for those on the island I hope to see many of you about and for those in colchester I will see you all when I return on the weekend.

Introducing Owen Gosling who asks you all for support while he undertakes an eight day fundraising challenge: “Check in with my challenge as I attempt to raise much needed funds for Age Concern by completing the first ever solo, self sufficient circumnavigation of The Island of Arran.”⠀
⠀
Speaking to Owen one will soon understand he feels strongly about the bad press the younger generation have lately received at the hands of the media which he feels isn’t a true reflection of the many youngsters out there who are willing to create a positive vibe within our society by pitching in and helping out. So through this walk, he is reaching out from one generation to another because as he so astutely reminds us, the young are just as likely to encounter loneliness as do older folk particularly when living away from home for the first time. His vision is to raise awareness by doing the walk as a solo adventure so as to demonstrate that the best way to combat loneliness is being active out in the fresh air which we are sure will inspire anyone under strain from being alone for a considerable length of time.⠀
⠀
Owen writes “In Great Britain 2.2 Million people aged over 75 are suffering from Chronic loneliness. Company is the one thing many take for granted and as we get older our circles of company will shrink. Age Concern looks to keep the fresh spirit flowing through the elderly in our community, bridging the gap of loneliness.”⠀
⠀
Owen is chronicling his journey ahead so you can currently catch up with latest news on – facebook and – instagram accessed from our blog page on our official website. We will keep you posted about progress with news of other places where you can view Owen’s story so watch this space! ⠀

Another practice walk completed today through RAF Boxted North of Colchester, brilliant to see some of the original buildings still standing after all this time, lots of air traffic at the airfield today aswell. The station was allocated to the 8th Air Force in 1942 and was home to 2000 United States personnel. Commanded by the famous Colonel Maitland, the station saw action over the English channel, Woensdrecht and Antwerp, it is recorded that the station personnels best day saw 28 victories. 

The station was home to p51 mustangs, p47 thunderbolts , B17 flying fortresses and b26 marauders throughout the course of the war. The station was also home to mosquitos, spitfires and meteors after the war until the station was closed in 1948.

It is also believed that when the war ended the USAAF airmen flew a captured FW190 back to RAF Boxted but buried it somewhere on the site, the aircraft has still not been found.

This splendid photo of the island (and Goat fell ,which I will reach the summit of, between the 4 and 0) is taken from the deck of the ferry between Ardrossan and Brodick. This is a familiar sight to residents of the island as there is no bridge making the ferry the  primary route to mainland Scotland.

Beautiful night at the House of Lords for the Annual Security Consultancy Dinner With the Worshipful Company of Security Professionals tonight.

Many at the dinner were absolutely delighted to hear the support the challenge has gained and for that I am grateful of all of your support.󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 A big part of this challenge for me is highlighting that young people today get alot of bad press and it gives a very bad image on my generation. Being at the dinner tonight with my fellow young members exchanging our indevidual outstanding and inspiring experiences, has really reminded me just how much I want this challenge to shine a spotlight on the fantastic work the up-and-coming generation do.

This photo was taken a year ago in kildonan looking east toward a Mafic Dyke. The foreground is reddened and this is because it is actually a desert sandsone.  This was deposited when the UK was a desert environment over the tropics as the continents moved the modern landmass to it's current position. I will be highlighting this on the 6th-Day of the challenge.

@scotlandphotowalks See what you mean now, I must have just missed it.

@scottishholidayhome @scotlandphotowalks you certainly did.

Just 48-days now until the challenge commences. Please be sure to share and donate to the cause. Thank you so much for all the support we have allready been receiving, it has been phenomenal.

This photo is a followup from the other day with that miraculous sunset that turned the sky and surrounding area a gorgeous purple colour , I believe it was due to a high level of saharan dust in the atmosphere. Made for a beautiful contrast in colours against lochranza castle though 

I will be staying in lochranza on the 3rd night of my challenge and will certainly watch the sunset again.

Flashback to only 4 years ago and Mums 80th. Hoping she gets out of hospital soon and her memory gets back to base as this infection has affected her Alzheimer’s very badly. My heart is here for everyone that deals with Alzheimer’s and elderly care. It adds an enormous stress and responsibility to our lives as we try to provide the care we want for our loved ones 🦋#liveforlife #makeeverydaycount #alzheimersawareness #family #uk #ageconcern @alzassociation @alzheimersfight #alzheimers #mum

WHO AM I??, Well I am certainly crazy enough to take on this insane yet incredible challenge ,
My name is Owen and I am going to be the person completing You The Island and I. I'd doing so I will walk 105KM around the island all alone over 8 days. Along the way I will be producing an 8 part documentary on the wonders of the island and my adventures 

I am 18 years old and have just finished my A-Levels at the Colchester 6th Form College. I am also and Ex-Cadet from the Air Training Corps where I learned alot of the skills I will be putting to use on this challenge. Aswell as that I am an apprentice from The Worshipful Company Of Security Professionals in The City of London. 
I have allways enjoyed the great outdoors, so having completed the 100mile March (Nijmegen) last year in the Netherlands, this was the next step up. I am also incredibly lucky that I have such fantastic support from my friends and family towards this challenge and the support received all over the country allready has been phenomenal and uplifting 

I have decided to raise £6000 for Age concern because getting older is the one thing that just simply cannot be cured. It happens to everyone and often sends the elderly community into a vast state of lonliness. Age concern aims to bridge that gap and bring the elderly community together,  I also met Jean (the colchester activity centre manager) as my Commanding Officer in the ATC. Jean has been a massive help in the challenge and does a fantastic job at Age Concern. **With the news filled with horrible stabbings and youth crimes, I have made it my mission to prove  the fantastic things my young generation can nd do achieve when we have the passion to do so ** Please donate and support my challenge as all proceeds go to Age Concern. Each penny adds up and can make a massive impact on peoples lives. 
I know that when I am older I will hope that charity's like age concern are still around to support me and encourage others to bond as a community 
So please donate and share my challenge today via the bio󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 #youtheislandandi #ageconcern #isleofarran #scotland #walking
