On the approach, avoiding the local pheasants as I have dogs
Venturing into unknown territory courtesy of Walk Highlands - ended up having a scramble on all fours near the summit, not a pretty site. The dogs were more graceful. Note: update map reading skills.
The next walk appears, Earl's Seat, for the following weekend weather permitting. Watch this space.
The stone trig point thingy, dog's not impressed but I am
It is getting awfully steep now and the dogs are laughing cos I'm on all fours as well
My collie likes the view as I puff and pant uphill
Looks like a very small hill :-)
