Moffat Again

I did the Moffat to Peebles backpack earlier this year with Mike, Laura and Louise. Unfortunately Sheila couldn't get the time off work and so missed the trip.
So now that she has a week off it was decided to do a few days hiking a circular route from Moffat so that she could appreciate what a lovely area it is.
The likely hood route wise is that we will head across to Tibbie Shiels by the route we previously walked and then turn round and return by Ettrick or on the Southern Upland Way. I am not casting the route in stone.

The intention is to amble rather than march and get to know the area a little better. So it's all packing today because we are off to Moffat tomorrow and the walk will start on Monday. I hope the weather is not too wet.

We will try and blog our progress from the mobile but we havn't got a spare battery so once it's died that's it.

Hi Louise, thank you for you good wishes. I think i might need it especially for that big UP. I am really looking forward to it and hope we have the weather you guys had.

Tibbie Shiels is a good place to camp - or they have beds too......!
We're trying to get Peebles moved three miles nearer to Tibbie's so that if we ever do that route again , we can have a night in the booozah... not that I..er......

Hi MIke, there may be beds but we had got a camp spot booked. We are really looking forward to it and i cant wait to see the scenery that Alan has already enjoyed. The booozah is an added bonus, saves me having to carry that bottle of whisky. haha
