No crowds on Ettrick Pen
Yes, I spent about 6 hours up on the southern part of `the Ettrick Horshoe` on Monday. Good views - The Cheviot, Lakeland Fells, Solway, Criffel, Galloway Hills, and so on right round to The Eildons and Tweed valley. Good dry walking with hardly a bog in sight. Now remember, this was on Bank Holiday Monday, and the weather was fine - so imagine my surprise that I saw not a single soul until I got back down to the read. Where have all the walkers gone?
