Can only sysmpathise with some unhappy walkers who mutter about the best view in England - probably a dfouble irony in that most of the hill is in Scotland. Been up years ago when you could see more than white blankets, nice to see the goats and a great walk looping from Belford back via the rather strange Calroust valley, feels more like the edges of Marple with all the strange little ponds....

Sorry about uploading this one he mutters...

Parked at the bottom of the Rowhope Burn and walked along to Carlcroft before taking the paths up Carlcroft Hill and heading for the Mountain Refuge Hut and picking up the Pennine Way / Border Ridge North East to climb Lamb Hill, Beefstand Hill, Mozie Law and finally Windy Gyle before dropping back down to Rowhope, a good five hour walk. Great weather and great views all day - superb. ~~~~ 22/12/2013 - Rosie's first Trig Point. Ascended from Cocklawfoot via Windy Rig (very windy).

Third of the day in the best of the weather. Great up and down ridge walk on the pennine way from Lamb Hill. Thank you to the mills of Lancashire as their slabbed floors make a decent dry 'ish' path all the way. Windy Gyle lived up to its name across the saddle. Great trig at top another huge carin with fabulous 360 degree views. Descended via bridle way to Rowhope then west across Hindside Knowe to pick up the road at Carlcroft. Great day!

Up from Barrowburn, back down The Street. Good walk, but very cold, misty and blowy on top. Goats on the way down.

Fantastic weather and views up to the Schill & The Cheviot. Considering the weather in the morning this is glorious and a fittingly final day for the the Pennine Way
