Date walked: 18/04/2019

Time taken: 3.5 hours

Distance: 14.5km

Ascent: 353m

Very enjoyable walk in beautiful and varied countryside on a sunny spring day. Having moved to Edinburgh fairly recently I'm just becoming familiar with the Lammermuirs and thought this my best walk there so far (and much quieter than the Pentlands that I'm also enjoying discovering).

Maybe just one suggestion for others o consider: I found the last part of the walk on the tarmac roads the least attractive (although still nice scenery with views of surrounding farmland and up to the hills). With exactly the same route it would be possible to do the tarmac first by using the alternative parking arrangement given in Stage 1 notes or by doing the route in reverse.
