The first Dusk2Dawn event took place in 2014 and raised more than £13,000 for the charity which supports those affected by Cystic Fibrosis and their families.

The team will set off from Perceval Square, Stornoway at 8pm and the route will take them through Lews Castle Grounds; around Newvalley, Laxdale and Benside; back on to the streets of Stornoway before heading out to Point taking them through Upper and Lower Bayble; before ploughing on around Knock and hitting the home straight back to the town centre via Plasterfield.

Walkers are expected to arrive back in Perceval Square between 6 and 8am on Saturday morning so if you’re en route for the early ferry, give them a wave!
