Date: 20th April 2016

Hello! It is now 4 days after I completed my challenge, and my legs are still recovering.

Mark McDougall- Day 7

Date: 18th April 2016

Greetings from, home! 7 days, 192 miles and around 400,000 steps after leaving Milngavie, I was back at just after 4pm today – I had completed my challenge! It was a beautiful morning as I left Rowardennan at 7.30am, with plenty of blue sky to be seen and the sun spreading some early morning warmth. […]


Mark McDougall- Day 6

Date: 17th April 2016

Greetings from Rowardennan, again! My hostel was midweek quiet last night, so I had the dorm room to myself and slept the better for that. After seeing the electronic sign at the side of the A82 saying “Snow Forecast” the previous evening, I was relieved to see a fine dry day outside as I got […]

Hello from Tyndrum, again! I was away from the very pleasant B&B I had been staying in by the back of 7am, with a kind donation to my challenge from the owner. I hadn’t been looking forward to this part of the day at all – about 2 miles up a largely “1st gear in […]


Mark McDougall- Day 4

Date: 15th April 2016

  Greetings from Kinlochleven, again! I was on my way about 7.30am, after a hearty cooked breakfast to set me up for the day. A sweat-inducing climb out of Kinlochleven saw me in Lairigmor, the Great Pass. Dramatic scenery, with the high hills on both sides and the track running on as far as the […]


Mark McDougall- Day 3

Date: 13th April 2016

Greetings from Kinlochleven! Arrived here at 4pm having left Tyndrum just before 7am. Today was all about the views. To me it is by far the most scenic stretch of The Way with majestic and foreboding snow-topped mountains, crystal clear rivers, waterfalls and expansive moors and valleys. It was also really hard going at times, […]
