Chose a nice wee easy one to try and encourage my son and Mrs out onto the hills. Set off for the hours drive down to Douglas and parked at the outdoor centre just before the Hagshaw Hill Windfarm entrance and set off up the hill with Jimbob (My dad), Nikki, Dec and Daftarse .

The weather was just perfect and the road was good and as we neared the turbines we had a wee go at jumping the blade shadows :)

After being clear of the sheep that Daftarse sooooo wanted to meet, I allowed Declan a little helping hand up the hill.

A wee bit of canine assistance

Soon enough we were at the top to admire the view and pose for a few photos.

From here it was just a gently stroll back down to the awaiting car and a good day had by all 8)
