This winter break has been dominated by high winds and rain, the first break in the bad weather coming on the morning of 1 January - we managed to get out for a quick burst of sun before the rain closed in again. Determined to get a bit more fresh air, we headed up the Pentlands the day after.
Allermuir Hill from Caerketton:
What a tonic to be outside in the fresh air and sunshine!
We were battered about by 40mph winds, but exhilarated to have been out and about. There was even a friendly guardian at the top of the ski centre slopes to welcome in the new year with us!
Angusina the New Year Coo, Edinburgh behind:
Shortly after descending, the rain came on again and the wind rose. Happy new year to you all.
