Last Saturday saw a round of the Coulter fell hills by seven members of the KMC. It was a sunny day with great views over the rolling countryside and the most folk I`ve seen on a route for some time. The short grass gave easy going so the long stretches of bog could be forgiven as could the cold wind and lack of wildlife uptop. We were in no hurry to complete the 22km over the 5 tops, giving Michael who was adding 3 new Donalds and an extra 6km on his day, time to catch up. Back at the car in about 7 hours, the enjoyable day was made better by the amount of lambs in the lower pastures. Every ewe seemed to have 2 lambs, obviously the farm has a ram that really knows his business !
