Doodlecat's Homepage

Picture of Doodle - a 
black cat

Welcome to Doodlecat, where we enjoy the pleasures of life (with a slight bias towards the outdoors). This page is regularly updated with news and views plus information about any additions or changes to the various parts of the site. It acts as Doodlecat’s Blog too, so the odd rant considered opinion may pop up from time to time.

I would love to be able to say that Doodlecat is all my own work, but it isn’t. Much of the outdoors content is courtesy of the splendid people who participate in the annual TGO Challenge (there is a section entirely devoted to this unique event) and many others.

To help in tracking down that elusive morsel on Doodlecat, the search facility under the title bar above is tailored to help you find it, either on this home page (Doodlecat's Blog) all the rest of the site (Main Site) or – if all else fails - the internet!

So have a rummage around the old cat basket and enjoy your time with us!

Rootling around for a route?

Sometime soon many readers will be turning their minds to the TGO Challenge. A potential new recruit to this merry band is Alan Bell, an experienced hill man and contributor to Scottish Hills and Walk Scotland . Alan has pointed me to these sites as a potential source of information for both the Challenge and Scotland in general. Both sites are a treasure trove of information for any adventurous hillwalker, and browsing the Scottish hills site I noted some very familiar names. This is clearly no secret to those in the know. The trip reports are especially recommended.

To help identify Alan's personal contributions to these sites, his user names are 'mountainman' on Scottishhills and 'mountainstar' on Walkscotland.

From next month many people will be browsing their OS map libraries whilst they await the the results of the TGOC draw. These are a couple of sites that may help in the route finding, or indeed determining an alternative if the fickle finger of fate is ... just a bit too fickle.

Happy planning!
