Updated 2023 with new V2 boots. I walked 1200 miles in the Inov8 Roclite G 345 GTX boots, carrying a heavy pack from Land’s End to John O’Groats. Including climbing Ben Nevis in the snow.
The final chapter of my LEJOG adventure. It features a tough walk along the coast path, some lovely people, and a family reunion at John O’Groats.
The pressure of the challenge is definitely getting to me in this chapter; Inverness to Helmsdale and I am feeling the result of high daily mileage and lack of decent food. This section takes me north from Inverness on to the A9 to Helmsdale, and finally starting the John O’Groats Trail.
This chapter of my LEJOG challenge takes me along the Great Glen Way, from Fort William to Inverness. It features food shortage and panic about a bus!
LEJOG Chapter 14: Loch Lomond to Fort William and Ben Nevis
This chapter of my wild-camping LEJOG challenge takes me from Crawfordjohn to Loch Lomond. Through the centre of Glasgow and on to the start of the West Highland Way. It’s a route I’ve avoided previously, put off by its popularity, but I found it surprisingly enjoyable – until I nearly lost my pants..
I’ve finally made it to Scotland! This chapter 12 of my wild camping adventure takes me across the border at Gretna, and takes in some of the Southern Upland Way and a LOT of road walking. Carlisle to Crawfordjohn
