Ken Milroy retired in August 2018 as CEO and founder of Aberdeen Foyer, a role he held from April 1996. “To mark my retirement I set myself a challenge to walk across Scotland from my home at Ballogie, Aberdeenshire to visit my sister at Lochgilphead.”

Ken is starting his challenge on Tuesday 21 May. “I have planned a route that will take me through some of the remotest parts of Scotland, so will involve me camping en route. I plan to complete the 180 mile walk over 11 days, walking between 15 – 20 miles per day.” 

“I’d like to make a parting contribution to Aberdeen Foyer so am seeking donations to support the work of this great organisation. Please help me help the Foyer by pledging your support through my Just Giving page 

“For those who might want to join in part of my walk, I have a day by day plan and will attempt to keep it updated, should I be delayed or indeed cover more ground than planned in any day. Please email me on for more information.” 

Ken has set himself an amazing challenge and everyone at the Foyer wishes him well and lots of luck!
