A North-east grandfather has died after falling from his bike during a charity cycle ride.
Jim Glennie, 64, of Stonehaven, was riding with 10 relatives and friends around Arran when the tragedy occurred.
His son, Alan, 44, was cycling next to him at the time and tried to give CPR.
The retired grandfather was nearly finished the ride when he crashed head-first into verge near Brodick at around 4.55pm on Saturday.
He was taken to Arran Hospital in Lamlash but was pronounced dead on arrival.
Jim leaves behind wife Joan, daughter Kim, sons Alan and Keith, and six grandchildren, with a seventh on the way.
Keith, 38, wrote on Facebook: “You truly were our hero. We’re all at a huge loss. We’ll get through this because you built a strong family. It’s just a pity the core of it is gone.”
Jim worked offshore as a chef before rising as an operations director with ESS Support Services Worldwide.
Sport was prominent in Jim’s life, earning the nickname “Nails” from his time as a centre-half for amateur teams White Heather, the Royals and West End.
He was a former manager and life president of Stonehaven Athletic, enjoyed golf and tennis and kept himself fit.
In preparation for the Arran charity cycle, Jim clocked in 1200 miles worth of training.
Jim’s efforts to raise money for the The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice in Glasgow have surpassed four times the target amount of £500 with donations coming in from mourners.
