Re: Four Years On

Doesn't look like it'll be May ... probably April 2022 ... but I'm trying to sell our D of E manager on the idea of Fort Bill - wrong way up the WHW to camp in Kinlochleven - across to Loch Ossian YH - up to Benalder Cott bothy - then into Dalwhinnie.

A good 4-day expedition on sound trails well-known and beloved of all Challengers, which will absolutely blow the kids' minds!

I think I've got a bite, too ... it just depends upon whether we can find the budget to do it!

Re: Four Years On

Jeremy,

Spotted your post, I was signed up for the TGO Challenge this year, but decided to postpone til 2022. You did say when we met at the bothy south of Spean Bridge I'd be back. I remember meeting you again in Braemar saying your tent was leaking. I wondered if you had finished the challenge. I wrote a blog of the day we walked together. I still stop every hour for 5 mins when backpacking. https://www.slatterymarsh.com/day-5-lairig-leacach-bothy-to-culra-bothy/

Re: Four Years On

Chapeau for changing career and becoming a teacher. I hope you can wangle a DoE trip to Scotland. That’s a fine beginners route you’ve planned. All the best.
