Palacerigg

A nice route to follow as it was too windy to climb hills this weekend. Just to say that Palacerigg's collection of rare livestock breeds, as mentioned in the Walkhighlands route description, is no longer there. :( Council cutbacks I'm afraid :crazy:

Re: Parking at Stanhope

Thanks for the info. Guess I'll just go along and if my choice of parking down the private road doesn't look too great, your suggestion gives a good alternative. :D

Parking at Stanhope

Anyone know if it's okay to park on the gravelled area next to the bridge on the private road to Stanhope in the Scottish Borders? I'm hoping to do a circuit up Hunt Law and on to Dollar Law, returning back down via the Stanhope Burn. I ask as the road is clearly marked as private, and to reach the ...

Maxwellston Hill, Dailly

$matches[2] It was a beautiful winter's day, blue skies, sunshine, wind speed zero, snow on the ground, and a good hard frost, so a brilliant day for a hill walk. I didn't fancy doing a "big" hill, not fit enough these days :( and don't have crampons, etc. So opted for this one which I fo...

Re: Wind Turbine Spotting?

I was up there today, beautiful sunny day, but quite cold. I think the concrete blocks in Martin's last photo, are the anchor points for the supporting guy ropes on those tall anemometer masts that go up in the early stages of wind farm planning. You'd think they have the decency to remove them once...

Moorbrock Hill, my final Donald after thirty years

$matches[2] Finally I was out to get my last Donald, Moorbrock Hill. This round was never planned, & must have taken me around thirty years! :shock: I don't know the exact date of my first Donald, or even what that was. It was probably Dollar Law, or maybe my local, Tinto, sometime in the late ...

Another glorious day, perfect for a Glen Afton circuit

$matches[2] Another beautiful day was forecast after a misty dull start. So with just 4 Donalds to go, I decided to do my next trio of hills, in Glen Afton. Started at the usual place of Blackcraig Farm for the climb to Quintin Knowe and then onto my first Donald of the day, Blackcraig Hill. There'...

A Borders trio from Fruid

$matches[2] Another beautiful day was forecast, so this time I set out to do the last of my Donalds in the Borders. I opted to start from Fruid, rather than Talla...didn't really fancy the tough climb up Garelet Hill. :lol: $matches[2] I set off from the parking place near Fruid Farm, walking back ...

A day on the Cauldcleuch Head horseshoe

$matches[2] As the weather was forecast to be sunny & warm all day, I decided to continue my quest to complete the Donalds. This time I was off to do Cauldcleuch Head. To make a longer day out of it, I decided to continue round the ridge returning by Tudhope Hill, a circuit of around 7.6 miles....

Re: Glen Afton revisited

Hoping to do these hills soon, but in opposite direction from you. Would also like to include Alhang, so missing Craigbraneoch Hill, do you think this would be achievable in a day walk? From Alhang, what would be the best way back? I was thinking of heading to Millaneoch Hill and Wedder Hill, then L...

Four seasons on Larg Hill and Lamachan Hill circuit

2018-04-29 @ 09-04-36.gpx My walk, to take in Larg Hill (my last Donald in the Galloway Hills), was just over 11 miles long, but the weather was forecast to be pretty reasonable, with just the odd chance of a shower latter in the afternoon. A long two and a half hour drive from home took me to the ...

Re: North Fife 3 Marilyns and a bonus in Perth

Enjoyed your walk report, I used it to help me with the best way up Cairnie Hill, my last of the Fife Marilyns. :) Parking spot isn't very good at this time of the year (August), pretty much overgrown as it's summer. I found another spot 150 yards further on. A track turns left to run along the sout...

Re: Merrick, Mullwharchar and stunning Galloway

Fabulous walk report. Loved your photos. :clap: I just love the Galloway Hills as well as the Border Hills, you should check these out also if you get the chance. Was at Loch Enoch in May during our mini heatwave. A point of information for you: Loch Enoch is almost unique in Scotland. It has an isl...

Chapelgill Hill from Culter Allers Farm

Chapelgill Hill is the last of my Donalds in the Culter Hills, on the Lanarkshire, Scottish Borders border. 2017-06-20 @ 08-17-34.gpx I've been up Culter Fell twice in the past, so was looking for a route that didn't require me to climb the extra unnecessary heights of this fine hill again. So I sta...
