Don't believe the weatherman! (Dumgoyne/Earl's Seat)

Had looked at the weather the day before and was looking like rain all day on the Tuesday, had resigned myself to another day in the house watching re-runs of Tipping Point :) Got up about 6.15am and can usually tell, even before looking out the window, what the weather's doing, and it seemed pretty...

Dumgoyne

Only recently started to explore the Campsies and do a little walking after giving up powerlifting which I'd done for about ten years. Climbed Lairs in my trainers a couple of months ago to get a better view of the sunset, saw owls, nearly got stuck in the dark, legs nearly stopped working and was w...
