Lochcraig Head and Molls Cleuch Dod - a day to remember?

With grouse shooting season started and me only able to walk on the Monday, decide to forego my usual Borders Donald explorations and instead head for some hopefully safer shooter-free tops within the NTS land at Grey Mare's Tail. I had been up White Comb about 30 years ago so decided to head for Lo...

Bin of Cullen

May finally have cracked how to get L and E out for a walk on visits to their Granny's. Pick something that is not Ben Rinnes. Nice pleasant walk on a lovely day. Even saw a mother roe deer and its youngster on the way up. They were only about 10m away from us. No picture though unfortunately. $matc...

Middle Hill from Manor Valley

Wanted to try a different route up Middle Hill since I had already been up Drumelzier and Pykstone and did not really want to do either of them again on the way to Middle. Read some reports about how the Manor head valley is nice and so thought I would try going up the path by Kirkhope. Manorhead va...

White Sands to Chapel Point

Windy day in lockdown. Trying some different walks in East Lothian. Remembered being in this area for a geology field trip a long time ago.

Sparking Spartleton

Felt so fortunate to live in East Lothian during lockdown and able to exercise within the local authority area. Had been up Spartleton Edge before on my lonesome but this time L came along which was great. Utterly fantastic day, snow, sunshine and ice. 90 mins to the top. Lookingt S the sky was full...

Talla Cleuch Head

$matches[2] Parked just past the bridge over Talla Linns. Lots of room and no other cars. From there walked up to the Megget Stone. $matches[2] then followed the path up Fans Law. $matches[2] As the path gets higher, the view opens up. $matches[2] The path continued to run alongside the deer fence....

Cramalt Craig via Dun (not Donald) Law

Headed back to Megget reservoir and the Cramalt Burn track that T and I previously went up to get to Dollar Law in the mist and rain back in Nov'20 but this time it was clear and just me on my lonesome. Decided against revisiting Dollar Law and instead headed for Cramalt Craig. $matches[2] $matches[...

Icy Lammer Law again but this time with Xmas pressie in hand

With East Lothian along with the rest of the mainland in Tier 4, I had to restrict my walking to within the county. Eventually decided on a return to Lammer Law. This time I would be taking my new Christmas pressie from W - a pair of Lexi trekking poles. The last few times I have been out, I have en...

Broughton and Trahenna in the mist

Atmospheric day. Felt like something out of King Arthur or Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Views were limited from the tops but still a fun day. $matches[2] $matches[2] $matches[2] The route partly follows the John Buchan Way. There's two memorial benches on the way. The birth years of both match m...

Re: Culter Fell

@iangpark - thanks for responding to my post. To be honest it was a wee while ago and so I can't really remember for sure if I really did hear chainsaws.

Dollar Law via Cramalt Burn

Met up with T. First chance to do so since Ben Lawers. Weather forecast not great. Round Biggar seemed about the best. Cloud and rain the whole way up and down. Also really windy at the top but it was still good to get out. Took the straightforward route up the track and back. Couldn't see a thing a...
