Saturday January 3rd
A new year's walk to chase away two weeks worth of over indulgences and severe lack of sleep. We drove to the bottom of the Rest and Be Thankful Pass and parked up by Butter burn Bridge and took the path to Ben Vane. Having had to wait 1/2hr for (truly excellent food and soup though) take outs from the Tree Shop at LFO we set off at 1.30pm for a 10 mile walk. We got within reach of Ben Vane but decided that as the path had petered out we had better return as the weather was decidedly chilly and the light fading. we yomped and marched back with very large appetites for The George in the evening. A great day.
