Nice day out walking in the Border Hills as always. Weather was a mixture of sunshine and rainy spells, with alot of waterproofs on, then off. An easy route to follow with a well walked track, only fading in places slightly. A wee bit boggey under foot in places, but that may be due to all the recent rain.

All in all a good day out, and also a chance meeting with a fellow hill walker, a rare thing I have found when walking in the Borders.

Was nice to see someone else while out and about in the Border Hills. I rarely see many folk in these parts so when you do its good.

Tried to push myself a wee bit and do it in 6 hours, felt it in the legs the followiung day though!!!!
