Well, this was our first visit to the Tweedsmuir hills and we definitely plan to go back again. We had a great fortnight exploring and wandering around the tracks and trails – and so did the dogs!

We met up with the Writesofway Gang one day for a very pleasant wander in the Moniaive area and by the end of the second week I was starting to venture out on some slightly more challenging trails, too.
I plan to write up a couple of the walks separately later on, but in the meantime here’s a short slide show (4 minutes), giving a flavour of the trip:
