Tom and I are back walking regularly on a Wednesday and we keep socially distanced which happily reduces the number of arguments we have. Today we chose the 6.5 mile route round Potholm via The Cushets and Craigcleuch. It's a grand walk but can be muddy in places.
The big House of Craigcleuch is just behind these trees.
The popular Gates of Eden view
Part of the first half of the walk is through this fairly recently planted wood of mostly Silver Birch and it is a very attractive part of the walk. I should also add that as we passed through this wood at exactly 11.00am we stood for 2 minutes silence and it could not have been a better place to respect those killed and injured during the 2 world wars.
On the path up from the Duchess Bridge there was a sighting of my favourite bird the Dipper.
