The 2014 Challenge: Route submitted!

Well, OK, so I've not quite finished counting all the squiggles on my FWAs - but I have for the main route, so I thought I'd get it off to John as it stands so a vetter can start looking at my main route. By the time they've finished doing that, I should have the measurements for the FWAs for them. So here's what I plan:

9 May: Start at Kilchoan, take the ferry to Tobermory, road to Loch Frisa then tracks and paths down the West side of the loch to Tenga and down Glen Aros, then by road to Salen

10 May: Roads and tracks to Fishnish. Ferry to Lochaline. Up the side of the loch to Ardtornish then path past Loch Tearnalt to a wild camp by the lower Glensanda River

11 May: Lochside path up Loch Linnhe to Loch a'Choire then road from Kingairloch to Ardgour (this is a BIG day ... 37 km or so!!)

12 May: Corran ferry, up Glen Righ, across the open hillside to Lundavra and the WHW, up onto the Mamore Ridge and ridge walk MULLACH NAN COIREAN (Munro #1) and STOB BAN (Munro #2); make camp by the locahn at 160654 and make a light evening out-and-back visit to SGURR A' MHAIN (Munro #3)

13 May: Ridge walk AM BODACH (Munro #4), STOB COIRE A' CHAIRN (Munro #5), out-and-back to AN GEARNACH (Munro #6), NA GRUAIGAICHEAN (Munro #7), out-and-back to BINNEAN MOR (Munro #8), descend Sgor Eilde Beag, out-and-back to BINNEAN BEAG (Munro #9) and descend to Kinlochleven

14 May: Ascend through woods to Blackwater Reservoir then past Loch Charain to Loch Treig. Under the railway line and ascend BEINN NA LAP (Munro #9) and descend Sron na Cloiche Sgoilte. Camp by the Allt Feith Thuill

15 May: Through Strath Ossian past Loch Ghuilbinn, ascend Allt Gualainn a' Charra Mhoir and Sron an Fhuarain to BEINN EIBHINN (Munro #10), AONACH BEAG (Munro #11) and GEAL CHARN (Munro #12) then descend by Leacann na Brathan to Bealach Dubh and so to Culra bothy

16 May: Past Loch Pattack and ascend Creagan an t-Seallach to Meall Cruaidh, over The Fara (Corbett #1) and down to Allt an t-Sluis then by road into Dalwhinnie

17 May: Up by the aqueduct past Loch Cuaich, over Bogha-cloiche and down by Maol an t-Seilich to the Tromie damn. Cross the damn and take the path to the Allt Bhran. Cross below the weir and follow the path past the woods to the building at 825892. Stop here, either wild camping or taking shelter in the building if possible. (Is it a bothy? I don't know. It looks as though it is more likely to be a shooting hut ... but it might nevertheless be unlocked.)

18 May: Long ridge walk over CARN EALAR (Munro #13) and AN SGARSOCH (Munro #14) and down to camp on the North bank of the Geldie Burn, near the woods.

19 May: White Bridge - Linn of Dee - Mar Lodge - Victoria Bridge - Braemar - Glen Callater - Lochcallater Lodge

20 May: CARN AN T-SAGAIRT MOR (Munro #15) - CARN BANNOCH (Munro #16) - BROAD CAIRN (Munro #17) - pony stable - Bachnagairn - Moulzie - Glen Clova

21 May: Green Hill - White Hill - The Goet - Black Shank - Shieling of Saughs - Waterhead - Craigendowie - Bridgend - Camp at the picnic site by West Water a little way short of Edzell

22 May: Edzell - Arnhall - Chapelton - Dalladies - Northgate - Gorloch - Luthermuir - Marymill - Forebank - Canterland - Pitbeadlie - Sillycoats - Mains of Woodstone - West Mathers - Tangleha'
