Work took me North of the Forth this week for the first time since lockdown. Quiet roads & a beautiful day, my last port of call was Milnathort so, on way home, drove 4 miles back to Scotlandwell to take my daily exercise - testing my dodgy calf - on the steepness of Bishop Hill. Saw about 6 folk in total, plenty of tracks to avoid passing anyone. Very interesting hill with many old quarries, crags (inc. Carlin & daughter, the witch turned to stone) & of course the (golf ball) weather station on Munduff Hill, the air thick with the smell of gorse. Back to the car in a little over the hour & a half and straight back down the road.
