Creag Choinnich Hill Race

The history books have Creag Choinnich as the oldest recorded hill race dating back to 1064. Yes 1064! King Malcolm II looking for the fastest man to deliver his despatches arranged the race up Creag Choinnich. The first home was the younger of two MacGregor brothers who received "a handsome sword, a baldric and a purseful of gold" (a baldric is a belt worn like a sash to support a sword).
