Legendary explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes heads to Moray

Post Thumbnail

The legendary explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes will be in the north this week to speak about his exciting life.

And the adventurer will also meet pupils from schools in Moray as part of his short tour.

Sir Ranulph is regarded as the greatest living explorer by the Guinness Book of World Records.

He is the first person to visit the north and south poles by surface and the first person to cross Antarctica on foot.

Sir Ranulph had a double heart bypass in 2003 and suffered a heart attack two years later as he came close to the top of Mount Everest. He finally reached the summit in 2009 on his third attempt, becoming the oldest Briton to do so at 65.

Tickets are still available for his talks, which will be at Smithton Free Church Hall in Inverness on Wednesday at 3.30pm and at the Hilton Coylumbridge Hotel, Aviemore, at 7.30pm.

On Thursday morning Sir Ranulph will visit the new Equal Adventures premises in Grantown, which seeks to bring military and civilian communities together.

He will hear about Equal Adventure’s work promoting inclusive outdoor adventure, sport and active lifestyles with disabled people.

Sir Ranulph will also appear at Gordonstoun on Thursday afternoon to speak to the private school’s pupils and those from other Moray secondary schools.

His final talk will be at Gordonstoun at 7.30pm the same night.
