Coast to Coast - Scotland

214 km / 133 miles

Argyll and Bute, Fife, Perth, Stirling
The route takes a line through Tyndrum, Crianlarich, St Fillans and passes the Hopetoun Monument.

In the former Ronald Turnbull publication, now out of print, no set route is provided - in keeping with the spirit of the annual TGO Challenge which allows for participants to plan their own routes within broad limits - but it details various alternatives.
