Those stones are still on the bridge and I myself lifted one in each hand on many occasions and one market day, I carried them across the bridge and back, some four to five yards - Donald Dinnie.

David Bagnall - At Potarch Cafe & Restaurant - 25th February 2017 & at The Gathering - 6th August 2017

Height - 5'6"

Weight -90KG

Age - 42

3 unassisted lifts.

Residence - Lisburn, Northern Ireland

David completed 3 unassisted lifts of the Dinnie Stones at the Potarch Cafe & Restaurant. His lifts were witnessed by Brett Nicol, Jim & Rosemary Splaine, Brian Irwin, Gary Bunting, William Kingsberry, Malcolm & Christina Nicol and Helen Knowles. A large crowd of spectators and press were also present

Davy, from Belfast, Northern Ireland bravely stepped up to the mark to pit his strength against the Steens and attempt to carry them across Potarch Bridge at The Gathering. Davy is a training partner of Brian Irwin. Having had a hugely successful lift of the Steens behind him in February earlier the same year Davy was hoping to emulate his comrade’s success. Unfortunately, a muscle injury picked up in training a few weeks earlier didn’t allow him to lift to his full potential, however even with his injury he still managed a very respectable attempt carrying the Steens approx. 1/3 of the distance. Davy will no doubt be back, injury free and complete the job.
