ABF The Solider’s Charity launches 2018 Cateran Yomp with new drone footage that puts you right in the heart of one of Scotland’s great trails

The Cateran Yomp is an annual cross-country event that puts soldiers and civilians side by side on a 24-hour trek across the historic ‘Cateran Trail’ in Perthshire.

Set on the drovers’ roads, forests and mountain tracks of one of Scotland’s best-loved long distance walking routes, the Cateran Yomp invites walkers to complete the 54 mile track in just 24 hours. And they have decided to launch the 2018 event with a specially commissioned video by acclaimed adventure sports videographer Stefan Morrocco.
