Great Glen Way - Additional Information

Additional Information

Inverness 9 June 2008

Met in Inverness, Tony and his parents Mick and Sue Jones from Essex.

Tony and his parents are on holiday from Essex, staying in a chalet. They were pleased with the layout of the chalet as Tony is unable to walk. He talks through a text/voice translator and uses it to chat up all the girls. When you listen to what he says you would be amazed he is still alive.

He needs a better wheelchair, which he can operate alone. This would cost £10,000 – so he is doing sponsorship to raise enough for it.

 

That says it all!

Also in Inverness, at the Bught Park Caravan Site, I met Sasha. She is from Manchester and is walking from Lands End to John 'O' Groats.

She has been walking up to 20 miles per day for two and a half months, and she still can't put up her tent properly. She has managed all this on only junk food. She has about 120 miles still to go.

Wales 2010

When Bonnie and I go to Wales next week (Tuesday 20th April 2010), I am posting photos wherever I am to my blogs. I am going to take as many photos of Bonnie enjoying herself.

Just about all pieces of equipment ready in front room for Tuesday. My total kit allows me to go off into the hills and disappear for a week. I am using 07XXX XXXXXX for my email, texts and mobile so I can keep in touch until I get back. My phone will be on all the time as I am using a solar charger.

I think you will like the blogs.

 

Thank you, John.

West Highland Way - Part1

The route followed will be from Milngavie (pronounced Milguy) to FortWiiliam.

West Highland Way

1.    I booked a ticket on the Aberdeen to Glasgow route for £10.00. It had to be bought about 3 days before travel to get that price. Arrived in Glasgow, Queen Street Station 4pm 18 August, and made my way to Buchannan Street Bus Station asking directions on the way.

2.    The No. 10 bus from Buchannan Street takes about 45 minutes to arrive at Milngavie, but travels past the road end leading to the camp site (the driver even told me where to get off), very handy.

Milngavie StationThe train was another alternative, which stops at the end of the line at Milngavie. I tried the train on the Thursday coming back from Glasgow with some provisions. The train stops at the town centre so the only option to get to the camp site would be by foot or bus.

Walking through the town in the rain with shopping has never been fun, even if you know which way it is. I tried and got lost. I eventually found my way to the railway station again and waited for a bus. A compass is no use if you don't know where you are and have no map. If you decide to travel by train, turn right out of the station.
