Seven-mile trek for over-50s

Seventeen 50+ walkers left the Haugh and drove up the Borthwick Valley. Turning up Harden Glen and then following a track past Harden Moss, the group continued further on into Shielswood Farm, eventually arriving at the Will Ogilvie Cairn on the hill road to Roberton.

After a quick lunch in a sheltered spot away from the chilly breeze, the walkers headed along the road before turning up onto Threep Head, following the dyke back to Blawearie. With time to spare, it was decided to extend the walk over Borthwickshiels Hill, dropping down into the estate, along the road and back to the cars to complete a seven-mile trek.
