The End

Today marks a month since my return from Scotland after completing my LETJOG walk, and is the day on which my VirginMoneyGiving page is due to close. I have had an amazing donation today, from Fr Peter Fellows of St Andrew’s Church in Pencoys, near Redruth in Cornwall. Fr Peter holds a regular ‘First SundayContinue reading “The End”

LETJOG – The Statistics

Following a few requests from those interested in the daily statistics of my LETJOG walk, I have prepared a summary spreadsheet: With apologies for the formatting errors – I have had to copy this as an image, as the spreadsheet would not transfer directly onto this website. The key facts are a total distance walkedContinue reading “LETJOG – The Statistics”

Going Home*

LETJOG – Day 58, plus 4: Sunday 18 July – INVERNESS to HOME! A late start today, and a fine breakfast, before Rachel and I checked out of the Ness Walk Hotel. We then walked along the River Ness, across the Ness Islands, and into the city to look around the centre and the castle.Continue reading “Going Home*”

Time To Move On

LETJOG – Day 58, plus 2: Friday 16 July – WICK to DORNOCH (by Car!)

My route today covered some hardContinue reading “Never Give Up On A Dream”

Right Down The Line

LETJOG – Day 57: Tuesday 13 July – DUNBEATH to WICK (21 miles) What a lovely start to the day! I was greeted with an ever-changing, and almost inconceivable, mix of early morning sunshine, mist and blue skies, before a very fine cooked breakfast and the super company of Rhona, my host at Inver ParkContinue reading “Right Down The Line”

Other Side Of The World

LETJOG – Day 56: Monday 12 July – HELMSDALE to DUNBEATH (16 miles) The word ‘antepenultimate’ doesn’t get nearly enough use, but today it has its moment. If all goes to plan, then after today I will have but two more days to go on my LETJOG challenge before I arrive in John O’Groats! TheContinue reading “Other Side Of The World”
