Whitehope Heights

Donalds: Whitehope Heights

Date walked: 16/03/2024

Time taken: 3.2 hours

Distance: 10.25km

Ascent: 330m

Parked at the Devil's Beeftub viewpoint on the A701 for my last Donald in the area (still a few elsewhere to do).
The day was a bit overcast and the hills more winter straw than lush green as in the WH pic!
Still, decent views over the Devil's Beeftub. And having seen the drop into it from that sharp bend on the A701 I'll be extra cautious going round there in future :)

Devil's Beeftub and the road high up on the right - almost feels like cheating starting this high up!
