The Big Walk. Section 1: Completed - Cape Wrath to Inverness

Trustee Peter Hudson made his way to the North-Western-most tip of Scotland at Cape Wrath to kick off the Big Walk. Extensive flooding on the night of his departure from Presteigne in Wales did not prevent a succession of trains, a post bus, a boat across the Kyle of Durness, and an old mini-bus delivering him to the light house at the Cape in one of the remotest spots on the mainland. A spectacular 107 mile walk over bog and hill then took him to Inverness where he was met by fellow Trustee (and extremely game brother) Mark Hudson to complete the remaining 70 miles along Loch Ness to Fort William and Ben Nevis. One hour of rain in 9 days! Haggis, whiskey, B&Bs and an adventure or two. A tremendous effort and a great begining to the longer trek to Lands End. Next Section: Fort William to Glasgow via Ben Nevis, Rannock Moor and Loch Lomond. Here's hoping for lots of walkers and sponsors all the way down!
