    Just got together a summary of my challenge in video form. More will come later and a proper trip report is also in the making. Will be finished in a couple of days probably.

    Nice video, looking forward to the trip report. Gives a good indication of the weather during the challenge too, couldn't have got much better.
    Great to meet you and thanks for the company.
    Cheers, Scott

    Cracking video that, nicely edited, thanks. Looks like amazing weather for Scotland.

    What's the pouch on your right rucsack strap, with the mesh on the front?

    Didn't know you were on here too! Yes, apart from the first day, only really shows that it's windy but there was a lot of rain that came with that too, haha. Really nice meeting you and hiking together!


    That would be one of the KS Ultralight gear pouches that you can buy with the pack. They're the same but you can add a mesh pocket if you want. I find it good to store half-eaten powerbars, then the wrappers and my small tripod. However the pocket without the mesh broke down during the challenge but they really take care of their customers and I'm getting a new one. Really good customer service!

    I think there's a big chance/risk of that happening ;)

    The No Camping sign - I think this maybe goes against the 2003 "Open Access" legislation - assuming you are not in the grounds of a private building, and therefore not enforceable under Scottish law.

    I couldn't tell. But that was at the parking area from where you can access Plodda Falls. To be honest there was a perfect spot there that would have accommodated my tent just perfectly, haha.

    Not sure I'd want to camp at a parking area …… never know who might turn up ! :wideyed:;)

    True, but pretty much the same can happen at your home/work too - even more exposed there to be honest.

    I was thinking more of noisy/intrusive folks rather than anyone intent on causing harm.
