My 2013 TGO Challenge route sheet is finally submitted

by backpackingbongos

It has taken a few months of obsessively pouring over maps to get my TGO Challenge route planned.  There are places that I know I definitely want to visit, the trick is joining them into a coherent and enjoyable route.  I start in the village of Inverie in Knoydart and finish 280 kilometres (174 miles) later in St Cyrus.  I really want to explore the wildest part of the Monadhliath so much of my route has been planned around that.  I feel that now is the time to go before the area is trashed forever.  If the weather is good I will take in nine Munro’s and a Corbett over the two weeks, so let the sun shine and the winds be gentle.

Lets see what the vetters make of what I have submitted.  I’ll do more of a route breakdown when I get a response from them.
