Moffat to Over Phawhope bothy.

Sent from my HTC



Started 9.15am with a grey overcast sky.  Within the hour, we were in the forestry track following Cornal burn.

Once out of the forestry below Croft head, there was some blue sky showing through.  The track to Ettrick head is splendid with great views across Moffat dale.  At this point we decided to take the route to Over Phawhope bothy as this was new to us.

Again the view down the Ettrick valley is also splendid.
 Tomorrow we have a campsite booked at Tibbieshiels which is only 11 miles away.

As the bothy was empty we have decided to stay here tonight.  Just watching 2 deer as the sun starts to sink, below White shank.
