Lovely weather as Ponyexpress (wife) and myself started out and we loved the wonderful track to start with

A little further up we even found a bench put there in memory of a man who had worked in the area.

We could have used it further on
We soon lost the track and followed the burn and worked out about the right place to cross without getting too wet

We soon got to the first summit which had a nice shelter for a quick sandwich.

Then onto the next one to see how bad the peat hags were???

yes they were there but we were very fortunate as it had been very dry

But was this pile of stones the real summit

Then onto the long slog across the plateau but we had wonderful visibility which was a great help

We met some young guys who overtook us but they very kindly took a photo for us

We watched them as they headed off to go down to see which way they went.

The path off was very clear......

But after that it was a bit wet until we the path lower down improved, but it was a long walk out and we were getting tired....always seems a bit further after 5.00 pm!!!! But we had had a great day and perfect weather for this outing
