A Walk Round The Black Esk Reservoir

It's not very often David manages to find time to walk with us so it was a real pleasure to have him and the dogs with us today up Eskdalemuir. We chose a walk round The Black Esk Reservoir as it was easier to keep an eye on Ruger who tends to wander off if a Pheasant is disturbed. It was his first time at Black Esk so that was a bonus. It is a nice 5.5 mile walk on forestry road without much climbing so as we get older its becomes very acceptable.  
Did somebody say BISCUIT
Its not a huge reservoir but very remote and we never saw another person the whole walk 
The Dam 
Tom and David with Bowman and Ruger walking along the Dam. We finished up at Edkdalemuir Hub for lunch. We had Tom back in Langholm in time for him to go to Flanders & Swan at the Buccleuch Centre. Just as we got home the rain started so we were very lucky with the weather.
