Whiteburn's Wanderings

One man's wanderings backpacking around Scotland plus the odd digression

TGO 2015 – IN!!

The postie dropped the “Welcome to the Challenge……we are delighted to inform you that you have a place on the event” letter today, quite a few names I recognise from previous Challenges on the list, I’m sure I’ll bump into more than a few on the trail.

Still haven’t got a final route sorted, I’m 80% settled on starting at Lochailort with resupply stop overs in Ft William Dalwhinnie & Ballater.  Following my normal routine for long distance backpacking trips (as outlined in TGO Challenge 2014 Planning post) I’ve first sorted out a FWA covering the whole C2C and plotted a straight forward ‘low’ level route across.  Next comes putting together some ‘scenic diversions’ & perhaps esoteric bog trotting which will form the basis of the final route submission, I’ll try to have it completed in the next few weeks to help spread the load on the vetters……..honest.

    Lochailort is a great start. Have fun planning. Hope we cross paths at some point.

      Always good to meet up with like minded folk on the trail, I suppose that’s one of the big attractions of the Challenge. Have fun.
