I would also like to thank all those who made the 2019 crossing so successful. When I planned my route I didn't realise that going north of Aviemore I would meet so few Challengers, but in five days I met Lindy...and that was it! It took a huge amount of personal willpower to get me through it and by that I mean that I was seriously down for 4-5 days and found it very difficult walking.
Tarfside cheered me up though, so did Brechin even though I wimped out into a B&B and so arrival at Lunan Bay was superb and totally alone.
I enjoyed it, I loved Ault na Goire but the loneliness as the end was difficult to cope with. See you next year.
