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.
