Highland Trail 550 2017 Overview.

3rd time lucky, Tom managed to complete the Highland Trail 550, though not without some drama along the way. A great achievement for a 12 year old.

A gear list will follow, but here's an index to our ride split into 4 parts.

Days 1-2

Days 3-4

Days 5-6

Days 7-8


  1. A great write up! Well done Tom! Amazing stamina for such a young fella! Looking forward to the gear list. Out of interest, did you fit all your gear on your bikes or did you need to carry a rucksack as well.

    1. Thanks Stuart. Everything was on the bikes, no rucksacks.
