TGOC 2015

This is the index page for all of my blog posts about the 2015 TGO Challenge.  The link to this index should always be visible at the top of the page, so it should be an easy way to hop back and forth between different posts.

Back in November 2014 when I should have been hard at work planning my route I decided to waste a little time by writing about the joys of TGO Challenge Route Planning

In April, when my head was chockablock with thoughts of The Challenge, I published my TGO Challenge Planning List.

The following blog posts were all published during my crossing (with a couple of minor tweaks afterwards to correct mistakes due to the limitations of mobile blogging and my carelessness).  I’ve listed a few placenames to give a rough idea of where I was although I don’t give more than a brief mention of the route I took.  My more detailed trip reports, written 5 or 6 months after the Challenge, are below.

Days 1 & 2 – Kyle of Lochalsh – Sun – Dornie – Falls of Glomach – Glen Affric – Alltbeithe
Days 3 & 4 – Loch Affric – Rain – Tomich
Day 5 – Rain – Wind – Dogs – Forest – Fort Augustus
Days 6, 7 & 8 – Glen Doe – Chalybeate – Cold – Snow – Peat – Monadhliath – Munro-bagging – Rothiemurchus
Days 9 & 10 – Foul Weather Alternative – Long day to Ballater
The End – Catterline – Tarfside – Charr Bothy – Tearooms – The End (and The Pub)

The day after arriving home I wrote TGOC2015 – Dornie to Catterline – A quick look back
