I am following the progress and really enjoying reading the blog posts and photos. Just a note to wish Mark all the very best for this incredible walk.
A walk is only a step away from a story, and every path tells

All I know is, I couldn't walk that fast. Good luck.

Thanks for all the support. Mark is still going, and doing really well (although the midges might break him now he's in the Highlands). I've just posted the next stage, as he starts the Scottish National Trail - from Kirk Yetholm to Traquair.

Certainly a change in scenery from Northumberland, looks well watered!


He's doing amazingly well.

Really good, great photos, having walked the same route last year I remember nearly all of the places from your photos.

Well that was a long catch up from the Grand Union Canal, but I am now up to date on this fantastic journey and it has made me even more determined to get back to doing some very long backpacking trips again, even though it may well be 2021 before I'll be able.Well done so far Mark, keep the reports coming and look forward agian to Cape Wrath.

Mark is now onto the West Highland Way and possibly even beyond!

So many paths yet to walk, so little time left

Hello again
If you've been following my progress, sorry for the delay - my wife was busy collecting me from the top of Scotland. We've now posted chapter 13 of my Dover to Cape Wrath walk: [size=78%]https://wildwalkinguk.com/2020/08/30/dover-to-cape-wrath-chapter-13-the-scottish-national-trail-part-4/[/size]
Thanks all for reading and for your support. I'm now back home in Norfolk sorting through 3889 photographs..
Mark

I'm really enjoying your hike, not the midges though. Very well done.

Guess from what you say in your reports you're kind of used to these long adventures, I can't even contemplate it!
Maybe mentioned once before I met a young lass from Belgium doing this walk, day 44 in Alston! She had achieved some remarkable goals walking all around the globe.
As for Scottish golfers... I played on some obscure courses up there over the years and could never work out how you play whilst drinking so much booze! The tee waste bins were well used!

Itís not booze, itís antifreeze. Try playing golf with frozen blood. Thatís much more difficult.

In general,I wouldnít drink Scottish beer if you paid me (with a few exceptions). Single Malt is a different matter.
