I'm Off On The Scottish Watershed Walk

Beinn Leoid on the Watershed in the Northwest Highlands

Within twenty-four hours I plan to be camping on Peel Fell on the Border between Scotland and England ready to start my traverse of the Scottish Watershed. I am very pleased that Peter Wright, whose book Ribbon of Wildness inspired this walk, is joining me on Peel Fell. Ahead will be 1200 kilometres of mostly wild and mountainous walking. I'll be posting here and on my Facebook, Google+ and Twitter pages when there's time and a connection and also writing pieces for The Great Outdoors magazine. I hope you find my journey interesting. I'm certainly excited at the prospect.

I wrote more about the Watershed back in December in this post.


  1. Look forward to the inspiration it will give me.

  3. All the best - not too late to pick the interesting finish :-)
