Blackhope Scar

On Thursday Jane and I took advantage of some decent weather and set off towards Peebles to climb Blackhope Scar, the second highest of the Moorfoots at 651m
From Gladhouse Reservoir we followed a good track alongside the River South Esk before branching off to the east just south of The Kipps. The track took us up on to open moorland to the north of the summit, and a boundary fence leading right to it.
The sun shone and there was an icy wind blowing but thankfully the boggy ground was still pretty solid so our trudge across the wide open hillside was pretty straightforward and we reached the trig point fairly quickly.
Great views of Dundreich and the wind turbines........
A good one to blow away some cobwebs.
