TGO Challenge

Date: 10th- 24th May 2013
Submitted by: Alan

Finbarr and I started from Mallaig, taking the boat into Inverie, from where we made our way through Knoydart.  The weather really took us on from day 1, with a 24 hour deluge causing rivers to spate, and we were immediately forced to use our FWA (foul weather alternatives).  Anyway, after 4 days of wet camping, I decided that Corbett bagging with Margaret was the lesser of two evils, and dropped out.  Fortunately Finbarr had a choice of companions by this stage, and he continued with a bloke called Andy, crossing the Cairngorms, and finishing in Montrose in great style.  Highlight of the trip for me was the ascent of a great Corbett called Streap.

Met up with Keith and Sandra in Aviemore
