Mountaineering Scotland and the Outdoor Access Trust for Scotland (OATS) were delighted to hear that Arnold Clark have made a generous donation to #ItsUptoUs, after one of their keen hill-walking staff noticed the campaign on social media.

Anna Traczyk, an Accounts Assistant with Arnold Clark in Glasgow, came to Scotland for a two-week holiday over a decade ago…and never left! Anna said: “I fell in love in Scottish mountains, and this is my 15th year here …I never went back home after my holiday.”

“As soon as I saw this campaign, I had a feeling that I needed to do something to help raise money, so I decided to email our community team and ask. Arnold Clark is a great company, and they are always happy to help if they can.”

A spokesperson for Arnold Clark said: “We’re delighted to support this campaign to save Scotland’s mountain paths. These spaces belong to everyone, and well-maintained paths are vital for the community – their physical and mental benefits cannot be overstated.

“The work being done by Mountaineering Scotland and Outdoor Access Trust for Scotland will improve access for years to come and we hope our donation will help them to make a difference.”

We’d like to say a huge thank you to Arnold Clark for their donation and support!

Together, we can all step up to save Scotland’s mountain paths. Donate now!
