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.

Ewan Massie - at The Gathering - 6th August 2017

Height - 5' 10"

Weight - 89kg

Age - 23

Unassisted lift

Residence - Fraserburgh, Scotland

Ewan Massie is the current Scotland’s Strongest Man at under 90KG. This was Ewan’s first attempt at the stones. He wanted to get the feel of them before joining the group attempting the carry later on. After literally a 2-minute crash course in lifting and grip technique Ewan made an excellent lift. A very impressive feat indeed.

Fresh from his very successful first lift of the Steens Ewan eyed up the task in hand. The Steens were placed in position and off he went. Ewan gave it everything and made a valiant attempt achieving around 1/3 of the distance. Given his inexperience with the Steens this was a fantastic effort and no doubt given time, he will return to take them on another day. Many older and more experienced lifters would be delighted with his result!
