The mountain weather forecast said if you want rain and cloudy tops then head west past the M74. So I headed east today for my first walk in the Moorfoot Hills, near Edinburgh.
3 Donalds in this 11 mile round - Blackhope Scar (651m), Bowbeat hill (626m) and Dundreich (623m). The views from Dundreich were exceptional and a great spot to linger longer on a warm sunny day.

Warning Please note that hillwalking when there is snow lying requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly. Summer routes may not be viable or appropriate in winter. See winter information on our skills and safety pages for more information.
