Re: TGO Challenge 2023 route choice

The Lairig Ghru is a classic high mountain pass - if I was only doing the crossing once, I’d probably go this way. The path is rocky and fairly horrible, the views are amazing. Glen Feshie is one of the best re-wilded higher glens and is easy walking. You won’t be disappointed with either. Its a win-win situation.

Re: TGO Challenge 2023 route choice

Graham,

Thank you for the input. I am leaning toward the Lairig Ghru as I have been fairly conservative with the rest of my routing-seeing that this is my first time backpacking in Scotland. Noth routes come highly rated and I am torn between them. I am going to hope the weather cooperates and I can experience this route but as required have a FWA to fall back on. Thanks again for your response.

Andrew
