One Response to Walks

    Hi Gil,

    We met at the bus stop at Garelochhead! You told me your web address
    and I subscribed to your updates immediately.
    I was suprised to find I made it onto the description of your day!

    To keep you up to date I have spent the last few days at the hostel at
    Rattray Bay, walking to there from Newburgh, a distance of about 36
    miles over 3 days. Long sandy beaches and some very undulating cliffs!
    And some great weather!

    In July this year I did the Northumberland part of the North Sea Trail
    and last year did the Yorkshire bit.

    As for future plans, I will get round to Toward Point by the end of
    this year I hope. I’ve walked Bo’ness to the the Border, so this year I
    will also fill in the gap between Bo’ness and North Queensferry over
    the Kincardine Bridge to link with the Fife Coastal Path. Year by year
    I will do bits from Dundee up to John O’Groats and probably continue
    round Argyll. Kintyre looks like a big project – do-able over a couple
    of weeks which may mean a couple of years in reality! And as for the
    West coast- maybe when I retire in 11 years time, but I’m not going to
    carry a tent or anything like that. I’m not really the strong athletic
    type.

    I see you’ve reached Ayrshire and recommend the recently published guide.

    Any further thoughts on the lobby for a National Coastal Path?

    Best of luck finishing your walk. Next year I would guess. What’s the
    celebration planned?

    All the best,

    David Michael
