Windy weather, and the ground was very dry. There were long stretches of paving stones which made the walk easy in places. Met at least six other people, including two miserable twitchers. Set foot in Scotland (Beth had one foot in Scotland). Alex and Beth did an 11 mile walk in wellies. A civilised lunch spot in a hut - details of F.A.R.T.S. left in the visitors' notebook.

Wildlife: lots of larks, 3 Cheviot goats, lots of kamikaze lambs, 3 herons, collie puppies, penguins, brook trout, sandmartins, pied wagtail, dippers, redstart, wild primrose, wild strawberries - and one tree. George saw a goat nest with kids.
