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 last three Munros of 2015 (15)
Sail Chlachach was not easy going. It was broken heathery peat, with lots of little pools and runnels. However, navigation was made considerably simpler by the fact that Schiehallion was more or less exactly on the bearing I wanted to travel, so all I had to do was to keep aiming for the big old mountain. I did veer to the left, however, and after a while I saw the river ahead - and what looked like a road on the other side. Did that road, I wondered, lead to a bridge which wasn't shown on my map? I reckoned it probably did; and if so, I could save myself some time and distance by heading straight for it. So that is what I did.
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!
