The weather isn't looking great for them. The weather guy on the beeb said yesterday that its wasnt a day to be walking on the scottish tops!

Hoping they are doing OK, I'm expecting some epic tales of weather when they get back.

Sorry Rich, got to this thread late. However, I'll be ahead of the game...

Welcome back Rich, Hope you had a great time and survived in style :)

Hope the weather was fine and dandy (20* C down south on the coast today, probably not that warm up in kiltland but tbh I hate hiking in heat anyway)

Look forward to your blog later mate.

"Testing" is definately a fair description, I hope Shewie is enjoying every mile along his trip after so long spent planning :)

Must admit the tales he'll come back with I'd enjoy hearing by the campfire I'm sure.

I finished my crossing on Thursday lunchtime. It was a solo crossing but I walked with various people from time to time, it's one of the things that makes the TGO challenge so rewarding, and I wasn't expecting that. If their crossing was anything like mine they'll have plenty of stories, particularly that first Sunday when a month's rain fell in one day. Very tough walking, and river crossings were extremely risky. Record numbers were forced to drop out this year, in addition to the day of rain we had snow, hail and sunshine. It was my first crossing but I'll almost certainly do another. A remarkable couple of weeks.
