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 (10)
My little diversion into Forfar brought an unexpected bonus. I turned right off the B9134 onto the track to Restenneth, and then left onto the path to Lunanhead - and this actually took me past Lunan Head itself. The picture shows the ensloces spring which is the source of the Lunan Water itself; and as I should be finishing tomorrow at Lunan Bay, it seemed strangely appropriate that I should have actually traversed the entire length of the Lunan Water (even if not actually walking beside it all the way) from its source to the sea.
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!
