Hi gmr, yes i have plans to do that horseshoe, it looks a cracking route. Cheersgmr82 wrote:Nice photos JC, did this is Feb I think in cracking sunshine. You really need to give the nearby Donalds of the Ettrick Horseshoe a go, much better than this walk and there is nothing bad about this walk either. You also forgot to mention the Donalds called Herman and Mr.Craig
With your knowledge of history you're tha man who would knowCollaciotach wrote:Wonder who Andrew Whinney was ?

Your route along the tops was originally the intended route for the southern upland way which now runs along the ettrick valley. It was changed so as not to disturb ground nesting birds and birds of prey along these tops.

Whats more interesting for me is the slightly welsh sounding Carrifran Gans on the other side of the valley. Where did that name come from?
Well, Welsh was spoken around here at one point...
