TGOC’15: Collected blog posts inspired by this year’s Challenge

I didn’t keep a day-to-day diary of my crossing from Lochailort to Stonehaven but was inspired to write a few (reasonably short) blog posts. Here’s a list:

My Challenge route from Lochailort to Stonehaven 

My initial planned route. I more of less kept to it except for around Loch Rannoch where I followed the forest tracks on the south.

I must admit this is only vaguely TGOC related but it got its first thorough outing on the Challenge. Great jacket let down by leaky zip.
