Long-distance tractor driver Robert Wilson is on the final leg of his Hebridean Way fundraising adventure.

Before heading to Barra, he had a pit stop at Kildonan Cafe in South Uist. Though Barra is officially the end/start of the Hebridean Way, Robert will catch the Oban ferry and complete his open-cab tractor odyssey tomorrow (Sat, April 20) in Rothesay on the Isle of Bute.

By then as reported previously by, the Renfrewshire man will have completed over 300 miles and travelled on six ferries on his classic Fordson Super Dexta to raise cash for three cancer charities.

Robert (60) will have driven an estimated 368 miles exposed to the elements in a tractor that is over 60 years old and has a top speed of 18 miles per hour.

At the time of writing, his online appeal has raised £11,205 for the Beatson Cancer Charity, British Heart Foundation and Calum’s Cabin.
