In the Border hills

An afternoon and evening hills. Between Newcastleton and Langholm there’s a big expanse of open moorland intersected by burns running over the underlying sandstone. There are numerous small falls but occasionally you come across something more spectacular. Blackburn Falls is one such. Infrequently visited it has a sense of special remoteness.

Following my walk to the falls I met up with Paul and Dave for a navigation refresher course. Paul is training for the Bob Graham round in August and wanted to sharpen his nav skills.

Great country for learning and finished before dark.
