Windlestraw Law circuit, Innerleithen
Windlestraw Law is the highest summit of the Moorfoots. Although a boggy plod when climbed by the baggers' trade route from the west, it provides the high point of an excellent circular when climbed from Innerleithen, following two ridges with some grand views.
Woodland paths, steep in places, heather moorland tracks and paths with some boggy areas. Descent is unpleasantly steep and eroded.
Bus to Innerleithen.
Car park on Leithen Road, Innerleithen.
