A gentle stroll through the Highlands of Scotland with the occasional photograph of wonderful sights seen along the way.
This blog charts my experiences on the TGO Challenge - the world's premier backpacking event. The Challenge is to plan and execute your own unsupported foot crossing of Scotland, from the West coast to the East coast, and takes place during 15 days each May.

The 2015 Challenge, day 13: Glenprosen to Foresterseat (8)
There was no mistaking the fact that I was now well and truly in the Scottish agricultural belt. As I looked back towards the hills, with which I was now finished for another year (on the Challenge, at least), the unremitting yellow of the rape gave a certain jauntiness to the scene. But it was a janutiness which marked a contrast, and a contrast which brought with it a certain melancholy, as I sensed the approaching end of another Challenge.
Just an ordinary bloke who happens to walk across Scotland from time to time. That's what this blog's all about. And when I'm not walking across Scotland, I dream of walking across Scotland. Or sit poring over maps of Scotland, looking for ways across. Or think about ways I can reduce my pack weight the next time I walk across Scotland.
Obsessive? Me? NEVER!
