Normans Law - HELP!

Route: Norman's Law, from Luthrie

Sub 2000s: Norman's Law

Date walked: 19/02/2020

Time taken: 2 hours

Distance: 7.5km

A repeat of Norman's Law for us today, it was a bit muddy and calling back the dogs was maybe a bad idea...

HELP!


There are new signposts up along the route including some directing to a path that goes around the back of the big green barn that was just getting built when I was up the last time. Part of the path was flooded near the gate but it was possible to go around it and the path going up was very muddy - a second path perhaps made by the cattle was a slightly easier option at the first part and this rejoined the main path up. At the summit rather than going back the way we came we took a grassy track that took us down the north side to a wall around a field, this would probably have made an easier ascent too! At the wall there was a path well-used by cattle that followed the wall to a corral and the track that led back to the gate. I had hoped to do the full Walk Highlands route, but the track went through a field of cows so it was a no and we just returned the same way. Zena found herself a cow horn which she ran around with for a while, then Moss got hold of it and by the time we were half way down she had eaten it all :lol:
