Scot100 South Pole Expedition
Craig Mathieson et Fiona Taylor

Two Scots, Craig Mathieson and Fiona Taylor, are attempting to make the trip between Patriot Hills and the South Pole to celebrate the centenary of the Scottish National Antarctic Expedition (William Speirs Bruce aboard the Scotia in 1904). They are also hoping to raise €1.5 million for cancer research in Scotland.


Craig Mathieson and Fiona Taylor are two accountants, just like millions of others around the world. But the aim of this team is to prove that with self-confidence and a good dollop of courage, it will be possible for these two to change the future for cancer-sufferers. The charities involved are Cancer Research UK Scotland, Childline Scotland, MS Society Scotland and the Scottish Huntington's Association.
