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.
Sounds easy? Think again!

The 2015 Challenge, day 14: Becoming a Leg End (16)
On the other side of the mound, it became clear what was going on. The A 92 had been improved, to cut out the S bend to the North East of Hawkhill; and they had decided as part of the process of improvement to cut off the side road access too. So now, instead of having a dog-leg to make at the A92, I simply had to cross straight over and take the road facing me. (There would still be a dog-leg at the "old A92", of course; but now this would have hardly any traffic on it.) The road sign told me all I really needed to know: I was on the verge of becoming a Leg End. I texted Mrs B and told her that I should be with her very, very soon.
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!
