Today on the Blogger Network, we feature Robin’s multi-day Scottish trip – an alternative to the TGO Challenge
In the first of our Blogger Network posts featuring TGO Challenge trip reports, we’re selecting a journey that isn’t the Challenge itself, but conducted in very much the same spirit.
Robin was unable to participate in the TGO Challenge this year, so he planned a seven-day walk from Fort William to Aviemore instead, meeting up and walking with some friends who were on the Challenge. His route passed through a variety of wild country, and, although the weather wasn’t perfect every day, he certainly got a taste of the great weather this year’s Challengers were treated to.
The weather had continued to brighten and there were tremendous views over Rannoch Moor. I poked around the ruins of the lodge to find a suitable camping spot, selecting a reasonably flat space about 50 metres away, just above the burn. All in all it had been a great day’s walk. The next two days were to prove even better!
