TGO Challenge

Backpacking Across Scotland-min
The TGO Challenge is an annual self-supported hiking event across the Highlands of Scotland, west coast to east coast. It started in 1980 and was the brainchild of the well-known UK writer and mountaineer, Hamish Brown. The Challenge is held every May and is sponsored by TGO, the UK equivalent of Backpacker Magazine in the US before they watered down the adventure and became a glorified travel magazine.
