My 2018 Challenge was planned as a fairly easy walk from Shiel Bridge to Johnshaven. Unfortunately, I injured my leg in Ballater (no idea how I did this) and by the time I got to Dinnet I could barely walk so I had to withdraw. However, I consoled myself with the facts that the weather had been superb, I’d already done most of my route from Dinnet to Johnshaven as day walks and I had the best of the Scottish scenery.
I don’t write trip diaries any more so I don’t have a day by day account of the crossing. Rather, there are 4 relevant blog posts
