In these recessionary times is it still possible to do things in style on a budget?
Definitely! Happily, my experience of booking things up for this year’s TGO Challenge has shown that there are still ways to do things in some considerable style and all for not a lot of money!
A quick breakdown of costs for this year’s walk’s big ticket items:
TRAVEL: The cost of my journey from my home in Berkshire to Morar on the north west coast of Scotland is £63.00. This includes travelling on the Caledonian Sleeper Service from Euston to Glasgow with a sleeping berth.
The cost of journey home is £42.93. This includes a First Class ticket from Montrose to Kings Cross with all refreshments included!
ACCOMMODATION: The total cost Including B&B’s in Morar, Spean Bridge, a bed in Braemar and campsite fees at Northwater Bridge and Montrose: £94.50
So, all up, that’s a two week holiday walking across Scotland for £200. Can’t be bad!
