The TGO challenge is a self supported 180 mile walk running every May from the Scottish west coast to east coast with a maximum of 300 walkers following their own routes. It is a tough trek requiring navigation skills, endurance, survival skills and hillcraft. This year those taking high level routes have had to endure fresh snow on the mountains and very high winds last weekend.
Many walkers choose a route through Deeside and quite a few come into Hilltrek for a well earned cup of tea and to rest their weary legs.
To follow the walkers and to find out when they will be in Deeside see the TGO Challenge website
