Still on strike, L agreed to go for a quick walk up Traprain in the dying light. Because of gigs, this turned out to be my last hill before lockdown.

Before I moved to Glasgow I lived in Edinburgh and had several friends move to Haddington & the surrounding area. Many, many dawn-o-clocks did I climb Traprain Law to freshen-up after a night of partying. Not the tallest hill in Scotland but you do get panoramic views over the low surroundings.

A good wee hill with some very fine rock pitches on the South side that would be useful for folks to get some experience of moving around on rock. Preparation for some of the bigger hills with scrambling sections and for moving about the skye hills.? :)
