Great walk, great views to E initially along Usway Burn to Saughy Hill and Yarnspath Law, with Bloodybush Edge beyond forest to NE. Climb to Inner Hill steep initially then easier until left turn (W) to summit Shillhope Law, where it steepens and becomes boggy. Views all round from trig pillar, but didn't linger due to biting wind. Descent to col before Kyloe v steep and boggy. Gradual ascent via faint path to unmarked summit Kyloe Shin. Again good all round views, though not helped by extensive conifer planting. Steepish pathless descent SW to join clear path from col to Barrowburn, then follow valley road S then ESE to SP at Shillmoor.
