Na een lange rit, lekker bbqe !
Riding a flamingo in the streaming rain.
Hiking with locals on trails unknown to tourists.
I won’t tell where, but it was really nice!
In preparation for a long day we breakfasted at 7 am and as suggested by Rab & Rachel we were driven to Daer Reservoir. "Walking from Overfingland to Daer Reservoir is no worth the effort"
We commenced walking at 8-15 and in two hours we had walked the roller coaster over Sweetshaw Brae(448m), Hod's Hill (567m) and Beld Knowe (507m). There are a
an incredible amount of wind turbines in this area.(magnify the photo). Then followed the long descent where we shed all the height down a forest fire trail. The walking was reasonably good and with my trusty app we had no problems following the path.
Lunch was taken in Brattleburn Bothy. Heaven! Chairs to sit on. Two Aussies from Tasmania had made the last log entry 3 days ago(see photo). They had lots of saws here.
A climb over Craig Hill (360m) followed before the terrain levelled off.
We met two females walkers and their dog out for a ramble who told us the going was easy to Moffat.
In case you think we are superhuman the total ascent for all the climbs was about 750 ms
We hit the so/called Crooked Road and then followed 5kms on Tarmac. Thankfully the girls met us about 1 1/2!kms from town and gave us a lift. We had nearly drunk all our water and were a little dehydrated on this hot.long walk.
Rest day tomorrow.Read more
