Dundreich and Turbine Hill

I started this walk from Boreland farm where the farmer kindly allowed me to park my car. I took the track heading north east and then the path before heading east up to the ridge and over to Dundreich summit. From the summit i headed south east to Bowbeat Hill, making my way to the turbines hence the new name i've given this hill. Once you reach the first turbine the track leads to the summit. I'm all for saving the planet but this hill has been spoiled by all the turbines. I returned back to that first turbine and took the tree line round before heading west down to the burn and returning via the track to Boreland.

Good weather for your walk and great views, apart from the turbines

Och I dunno JC! I could say many things. I could say "stop wandering the hills on weekdays and get a job like most normal folk!", or I could say "I hate you for the fact that you are apparently able to get out in the hills several times a week!", or I could just say "*#@%"^+>$&!". But I will restrain myself! All I will say is that you must be building up the most comprehensive, varied, informative and original Walks Diary on this site. Oh, that and "I am jealous as hell that you can apparently get out several times.........."

Thanks Susie and thankyou Graeme, it's not all good getting the chance to get out as much as it's not easy planning the trips so close to each other And to hear i get more time off than a teacher has made my day Thats just a joke by the way for all you hard working teachers out there
