A day trip to the Borders for a wee change, thinking that was where the weather was better this weekend... still got caught in the passing downpours, but at least it was windy enough to dry off quickly in between them. :lol:

Going anti-clockwise (better for wind direction today), we left the road to head up the grassy trail
Going up Hudderstone first; chilly wind already picking up
Pleased to follow the windfarm roads, as the first downpour started
The first of our 2 outlying Donald Tops, Coomb Dod
Hillshaw Head summit
Gathersnow Hill - our half way Graham!
On the other outlying Top, Coomb Hill, looking back to Gathersnow
Culter Fell at last (feeling it now! This ended up being a bigger day than we'd have done on the big hills)
Following the track back down
Our stats for today (ascents are closer this week, despite it being more windy than last week)
