Beware of Lamington in the times of Covid..

Since the lockdown announcement just before Christmas I've been plotting walks within the South Lanarkshire area to stay within guidelines. Luckily South Lanarkshire is a large area so there was (at the time) still quite a few hills within reach. It had also been snowing so I didn't want to try anyt...

Tinto for the second time

The last time I walked up Tinto was in June just as Covid restrictions were being eased. I had suffered from from a bout of probable Covid in March and this was the first hill I'd attempted since. I had to stop on quite a few occasions and felt breathless often. I'm glad to say after a good few mont...

Jura has only recently been introduced to hillwalking having walked the Lowther hills a few weeks ago. She loved it but got a little too excited around sheep! Dumyat seemed like a perfe...

Meikle Bin and done it!
