A brother and sister hit the heights in memory of their late father.

Clare and Matt McGarr from Falkirk abseiled down the Forth Rail Bridge to raise cash for Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland (CHSS).

Their dad Paul died of a heart attack two years ago aged just 55 and Clare (26), a teacher at Kinnaird Primary School, has been raising money ever since.

This time though she managed to rope in her brother.

She said: “When Matthew and I were travelling in China, Australia and New Zealand we did a lot of things like a sky dive and wlaking on glaciers, but the abseil was by far the scariest.

“Once you’re out of the plane on a sky dive, that’s it, but you have to climb over the edge for the abseil and then control it on the way down. It was a great experience though.”

They raised £780 for CHSS.
