nice one, and nice pics. really brought back memories of some good times too. i used to be "based" at Boghall Farm while training with the SWT, and we would regularly take off up the hill for a skive. a beautiful and wild spot so close to the city

Cracking report and photos :-) Don't know much about the Pentlands, and this report has certainly given me a great insight.
