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 (28)
Having reached the path, I found a good place to stop for a spot of lunch before pressing on. The hard work of the expedition was all now behind me. What remained was the long trudge down to Ben Alder Lodge, and then along the shores of Loch Ericht and into Dalwhinnie, where I had a bed for the night at the bunkhouse already booked. I hoped that I might be able to collect a walking companion along the way because, to be sure, it was a long, dull trudge if you were doing it by yourself.
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!
