Travistrek West Highland Way




This is yet another shameless plug – but this time for something that’s really got nothing to do with me.
Really avid readers may remember me mentioning writing a short blurb or description of the West Highland Way from North to South and that perhaps, in view of the fact that I’ve never actually walked this route, somebody might like to check my writing.
Thanks to Aktoman and Martin Rye for the proof reading, suggestions and pictures, the much improved description is now in the hands of the Travistrek team.

Travis, I should explain, is a guide dog who’s place is on the other end of the lead of a blind chap called Scott Cunningham
Scott, Travis, some former Rangers footie plyers and some members of 45 Royal Marine Commando will be walking the West Highland Way from Fort William and finishing a bit further on at Ibrox. They’ll be starting on 3 April 2009

All of this is for raising money for Guide Dogs for the Blind

As well as all this, there’s a Gig entitled “Madchester Lives On” – a celebration of Manchester bands to be held at Tan Hill Inn on 7 Feb 2009.
Be there or be square like me by the way….
Tickets are £15

This bloke Scott is quite amazing as it happens, the video will dispel any doubts as to the man’s chances of success.
Anybody fancy a bit of wild camping and wild(ish) music near Tan Hill?
