Lounge lizards up the Pentlands......or was it couch potatoes?

It was blowing a gale at the top of Allermuir but the view over Edinburgh to the Firth of Forth was spectacular.

As was the view back along the Pentland hills

The start of the track known as The Goat Track which is fast and dry just now

The track down the side of the Shelter Belt, fast and loose

Had to stop for this photo of the bridge at the bottom of the track down from Carnethy Hill

Kathy and I came across this discarded but in perfect condition sofa at the bottom of the climb up to Castlelaw and decided we might as well have a seat on it!

Kathy halfway down the track known for some unknown reason as "Run sheepie run"!!

Sunday afternoon and the bee hives are buzzing, should be plenty heather honey this year, though none of us were brave enough to look in and see!

Baz, Clive and myself thought we might as well sample the sofa as well!

A week of fairly settled weather with a sofa providing some fun and games and Sunday providing a big Pentland ride with a lot of hard climbing, more weather like this would be very welcome.
