Inverness Crazy Golf - based on Bught Road - is hosting a 24 hour marathon of the activity in aid of charity.

Gus MacDonald, the co-owner of Inverness Crazy Golf decided that it was important to bring awareness to smaller charities in the city and wanted to raise some cash for them.

He will be playing crazy golf for 24 hours straight from June 22 - 22 and is inviting others to come and join him.

Teams of four can join for £100 with every penny going to benefit 24 local charities.

Speaking about the event, Gus said: “This is the first time we have done something like this, but we just want to give back to the local people in our town.

“We want to raise awareness of the charities that maybe aren’t in the spotlight, to showcase what they do and generate some income for them.

“I’ve looked it up and the longest continuous game of mini golf in the Guinness World Records lasted for 24 hours, so I will try and carry on a bit longer than that!

“The reception so far has been incredible and I think so far we have 30 people involved. We’ve also had a donation already from Culloden House Hotel and from friends around the world.

“I think we will soon surpass our target of £2400.”
