I did the TGO Challenge in 2013 for the first time. I’d been thinking about it for years but I never managed to get away from work commitments. Then, after treatment for cancer in 2011, I decided to prioritise life rather than work and I signed up in October 2012. I wanted to revisit places I hadn’t been for years and I wanted to walk ‘home’ – I live outside Aberdeen. So, I planned a route starting at Mallaig through Knoydart, Glen Roy, and Glen Feshie, finishing along the Deeside Way.
I originally wrote up my experience as a trip diary but, because I had to rebuild my web site (see Starting Afresh), I decided to summarise these in a couple of pages, with a single photograph per day.
