Snowy Pentlands Run

I managed to meet up with Nettle in the Pentlands on the 30th December for an excellent snowy run. It was clear while we were on the hill, but snowing steadily by late afternoon.

Always great to get out with Nettle.

Pentlands

There was excellent sunny autumn weather in Edinburgh this weekend and Nettle and I managed to get out for a run in the Pentland Hills this afternoon.

We did a circuit from near Buteland taking in fair bit of trackless ground around East Cairn Hill as well as the path back past the Bore Stane. The ground was generally quite good underfoot with the odd soggy/muddy section and any outcropping rock was dry.
