An Aberdeenshire prosthetics student has embarked on his 1,240-mile charity cycle from Scotland to Spain to raise money for amputees.
Tom Robertson, 22, of Drumoak, is now on a journey to raise £1,000 for Indian charity, Mukti.
Mr Robertson, who set off on Tuesday, will cover Scotland, England, Wales, France and Spain – including the Pyrenees mountain range.
He will then in head onwards to Pamplona, in Spain’s Navarre region.
Mr Robertson is being joined by friend and cycling partner John Grose, 19.
They will cross the English Channel at Poole and sail to Cherbourg, France, before tackling the Pyrenees on the border between France and Spain.
They aim to arrive in the Spanish city in time for the San Fermín festival on July 5 – best known for the running of the bulls event.
Former Banchory Academy pupil Mr Robertson studies prosthetics and orthotics at Strathclyde University, in Glasgow.
Mukti’s “Free from Crutches” campaign provides free prosthetic limbs for amputees in India.
Mr Robertson said: “We’re aiming to do the trip in 18 days. We’re really looking forward to the views of the Pyrenees, but also know that that day will be the hardest by far.
“I decided to cycle to Spain when flying back from Pamplona last summer after having an incredible time with some new-found, life-long friends from all around the world, including Paisley.
He added: “I’d had to quit competitive swimming that year due to a complicated shoulder injury, so was looking for a new sporting focus – this was it.”
