Climbing a mountain

Emily, Rachel and their gorgeous fur baby Skye are climbing a Mount Schiehallion (equivalent height of 10x Big Bens) in aide of PAS. Rachel’s gran Elsie suffers from PA so it is a cause close to their hearts. Good luck girls and thank you so much for your efforts. For more info see their page here.
