Edi and Blaze

Portree pin up pooch Blaze now has his own celebrity fan club.

For one of Scotland's most famous singer songwriters, Eddi Reader, has not only got herself a copy of the border collie's new fund-raising calender - she's even signed one!

Already the full colour calender packed with pictures of Blaze on top of some of Scotland's most iconic mountains and hills as brought in over £1,000 for the local Skye Mountain Rescue Team

Now, with a little help from Eddi and others it may not be long before Blaze and is mountain top shots hit the hoped for £3,000 target figure,

Earlier this year Blaze made local news when he made the final of the VisitScotland “Ambassadog” competition. However, it was back in 2014 that, again through his calendar that Blaze became known to thousands. Thanks to his 9,000 Twitter followers and the 90,000 on Scotland from the Roadside Facebook page, he raised £1,000 for Glencoe Mountain Rescue.
