JOGLE Day 21 21/05/17 Peebles – Selkirk 23 miles

Struggled to get up today but once I did it was all good (apart from episode 2 of the Arla yoghurt saga, that is – Strawberry flavour ok but yoghurt too thick for my liking). Started with a walk through the pretty town of Peebles then onto the Drovers Path up and up and up even more onto moorland over Kailzie and Kirkhope Law to 1800feet and great views aroundthen descended with a map misread via some farm tracks to TraquairAfter a brief rest I then embarked on the second climb of the day up to historic Minch Moor – sharing the Southern Upland Way for a few miles as the wind and rain arrived.The long path down brought me to Yarrowford with its nearby ruined castle where I met some friendly local people and it seemed they all knew very quickly the reason for my visit. A few miles later I crossed a nice little footbridge over Ettrick Water before the last couple of miles on a minor road into Selkirk and camp at the leisure centre – there are not many people here and we do feel a little vulnerable…Enjoyed the walk today although it was quite tough. Tomorrow is my last full day in Scotland!
