  1. Due to Covid, Frank from The Irregulars LDWA was going to lead West Highland Way, Speyside Way and Great Glen Way. It never happened last year and it didn’t come off this year. You could either do one, two or three trails. I’ve done West Highland Way and part of the Great Glen Way, so am hoping Frank will resume them in 2022. Someone else in The Irregulars was leading The Two Moors Way (Exmoor & Dartmoor) in April but have learned today that it has been cancelled. Hope this one as well gets re-done. I will have finished my chemo by then, so am hoping to get back to fitness again. This pandemic has drove me round the twist. Take care of Joe, I love cocker spaniels, in fact any dog for that matter. I don’t have one at the moment, just one cat left. Jean

    1. I am organising a knee operation at the moment so I will be out of action for a while. Hopefully if Covid goes away and I recover we will be looking to do a trail in October. Can’t decide which one as yet. Hope you get back to full fitness soon 🐾🐾👍

    1. Wow, Jean. 18 correct. I thought that the snowy one might be difficult but as you obviously know the photos are in chronological order. So maybe someone might guess. The next one is in a lovely little village. I will post the answers in a few days. Thanks for having a go. I loved that trip and can’t wait to get back to Scotland soon. Great name for a cat, by the way! Keep safe and well 🐾 🐾👍
