Well done thatís fantastic! Have a well deserved rest now.


Don't be too hard on the 'baggage transfer lot,' for some of us carrying heavy packs is not an option.
Yes that would be me. I would love to carry everything but know I canít but thatís not going to stop me walking!

Thanks for all the heart-warming words. The major task now is re-integration!
The final nine days:

Another brilliant account of your "stroll" through Scotland.  Like you I did get fed up with the JOG trail when the destination became more important than walking beside the sea.  At least you didn't get a question I was asked in a bar "Do you support Celtic or Rangers" - luckily I could answer Brentford!

What next?

Brentford?? No wonder you walk so much!

The advantage of making notes/photos as you go is that if you don't on very long walks one day just morphs into another.  Additionally over the winter you can reread your experience and almost live it day by day.  A good final reflection of your "walk".  Is your final photo in the summary Boscastle?

Well identified! The other is Swaledale from above Thwaite.
As for the next one, maybe C2C although, if with the missus, more likely St Cuthbert's Way.

I have thoroughly enjoyed your blogs and heartily agree that when it comes to beer in Scotland, stick to malt whisky (I have lived in Scotland for more than 20 years).
