In the bar at Montrose, Judith summed up the spirit of this year’s Challenge rather well:
“I found myself in the middle of a huge trackless bog and the rain was hammering down and I thought to myself – Well this isn’t the very worst bog I have been in – and so got on with it.”
There’s a lesson there for all Challengers.
Here’s a few pictures (that can be enlarged if you click on them) plucked from those that were taken when the rain wasn’t hammering down and I wasn’t splodging my way through yet another trackless bog.

Many thanks must go to Andrew (Accommodation) and Phil (Route) for a lovely walk. Amazingly, we finished quite tidily and in good spirits after quite a tough walk.
I’ll type up the report on this trusty old Remington in the next week or so.
