The weather forecast for today was dry, warm and sunny. After checking that we’d not been rematerialised in Kent, we decided to try another walk near Selkirk.
This one was on the opposite side of the town, on the Philiphaugh Estate.
Initially we climbed up a track through the forest
But we were soon above the forest and into the sunshine.
Gemma and I left Tina chilling out by a lovely reservoir and headed for the local summit, which is capped by three “Brethren”, which were placed by the local lairds years ago to mark their estate boundaries.
We then headed up to the grave site. Look it up on the web if you want the full story!
The rest of the route was back along forest tracks downhill, but it was very warm by this stage, so after a quick bit of shopping in Selkirk, we returned for a much needed cup of tea!
