Getting Closer to Edinburgh

Sunny hot days and chilly nights seem to be the theme for the Scottish leg of my walk so far.

It’s been a lovely day for walking but my fingers are starting to go numb with the cold as I type this and it’s only 8 o’clock in the evening.

I’ve enjoyed watching the fish jumping in the Tweed and also watching the fly fishermen not catching them.

I covered 17.8 miles today mainly through coniferous woods and along the river Tweed.

The visitor centre in Tweed was the third one I have visited that has run out of OS maps; apparently their supplier has gone bust. Thankfully there was a bookshop with a good supply so I am a happy man – at last I have a map for the path I am walking and the next map (Edinburgh area) ready.

I’m getting near Edinburgh and Glasgow so am mentally preparing myself for the culture shock – difficult whilst lying in my tent listening to the birds and the wind……

Have to stop and warm my hands up now.
