Felt so fortunate to live in East Lothian during lockdown and able to exercise within the local authority area. Had been up Spartleton Edge before on my lonesome but this time L came along which was great. Utterly fantastic day, snow, sunshine and ice. 90 mins to the top. Lookingt S the sky was full of foreboding, looking N it was all clear.
