GIVING BACK TO HELP MAINTAIN & RESTORE OUR PATHS
We’re proud to announce a new initiative here at Macs Adventure. We’ve teamed up with organisations on two of our most popular UK walking routes, The West Highland Way and the South West Coast Path. Recognising the rising costs to maintain these paths and to help ensure their future sustainability, we’ll donate $10 for every customer who travels along these routes with us in 2023.
“As we celebrate our 20th year, we’re proud to be collaborating with the West Highland Way and South West Coast Path Associations to support restoration of their pathways. We appreciate the joy that these routes give to thousands of walkers every year and that maintaining these paths is crucial for future generations.” - Neil Lapping, CEO & Founder
In Scotland, The West Highland Way is now established as the most popular long-distance walk and we’re the largest operator on the route, with exceptional knowledge of its paths, people and places. This donation of $10 per customer will help support and maintain its 96 miles of paths as well as the bridges, gates, signage and drainage which are regularly hampered by the famously wet, Scottish weather, and the increasing severe weather events.
Sue Hilder, Chair of the West Highland Way Management Group said, “The West Highland Way is Scotland’s best-loved long-distance route but there are challenges in keeping such a popular route maintained, including increased costs of materials and the need for specialist labour skills. We’re grateful for this additional support which will help ensure the route can be enjoyed by walkers for years to come.”
The South West Coast Path is the longest of England’s National Trails and its Association (SWPCA) celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. This stunning route is on every walker’s bucket list with 630 miles of coastal walking around the coastlines of Somerset, Exmoor, North and South Devon and Cornwall. We offer 18 different hassle-free itineraries with daily luggage transfers along the South West Coast Path and the $10 donation for every customer who walks the route in 2023 will help the SWPCA with their necessary maintenance work.
Neil concludes, “Whilst we’re continually adapting and innovating so that there’s always something new on offer for the varied needs of our customers, these classic, iconic walking routes continue to be a cherished part of our business and we want to ensure they remain that way for generations to come.”
