An early start...

0.6 degrees when I woke this morning.  An hour or so later I was parking up at the foot of the Hillend Road with my sight set on Caerketton Hill.  It was a cracking morning, through woodland initially and then round to Boghall and more open hillside.

We planned our walk to enjoy the early morning sun on this side of the hill, but what we hadn't expected was the quagmire going up Boghall Glen, but with magnificent views ahead of Allermuir you seldom worried about the state of your feet.  How lucky are the residents of Edinburgh to enjoy such wonderful hills on their very doorstep.  I even heard some Red grouse which is not so common up here these days.

Approaching the Windy Nook between Allermuir and Caerketton Hill.

Looking to Allermuir from near the top of Caerketton Hill.  A most magnificent morning to be out and about.  And all this before 10:00 in the morning.
