Walking today

After a slow start to the day, I set off to look at a hill fort, that is advertised here at the camp site. It was not far away but I stretched the walk out to about an 8 mile loop, which included a lunch stop. The weather was excellent, but once up high I needed a fleece to stop the chill in the wind. For lunch I found a convenient wall to shelter behind to keep out of the wind, so I could make some tea using my meths stove.

What remains of the Hill Fort and Settlement is a series of earth works, high up with a great view of the surrounding area.

Morning walk – Loch Morlich and Glen More

Last day today – Edinburgh for lunch tomorrow and then back to Lincoln. Time for one more walk, early morning at Loch Morlich and Glen More. I took my coffee with me in a flask and a couple of croissants.

It was bright and below zero and despite the mild weather this week the edges of the Loch were frozen.
