I'm in moor land swathed in Scottish heather with hardy looking sheep dotted around.

I don't see any other walkers all day and only the occasionally cyclist and car.

As I come up to the top of the moors I can see the Firth of Forth for the first time.

A final three miles south to Blinkbonny Wood where I camp in the woods and sit up around a fire drinking homemade Damson Gin (that my Air BnB host gave me  in Coldstream).
