I see that Mark has posted his final entry on his Lejog blog. Made it to JoG. Well done Mark a real achievement wild camping all the way and taking in Snowden, Scafell and the Ben and in what has for a large part of your walk been the winter. Enjoyed following your blog. I know it was hard and you did well to keep going through the low points and borderline injuries. Well done again.

Thank you all for your interest and support.... I have been back for a week now and only just recovering. I am still overwhelmed by it all and trying to process what I feel about the walk. The biggest surprise was the amount of great people I met all along the walk, I had so many lovely conversations about walking and gear, and it was probably these people that kept me going to the end. I will add to the blog with my gear report and how I feel about it all shortly.
 

I didn't go from Fort William up past Sandwood Bay to Cape Wrath because I have done the Cape Wrath Trail recently but this is possibly the nicer route. I did enjoy the Great Glen Way as the weather was great and I took the high level route when I could. The walk into Inverness was really nice, the friendliest place I have ever been. The John O'Groats trail is hard going but when more people are walking it I am sure it will become another classic. 


Thanks again. Mark
