Tuesday 20th August 2013


After my last two walks I decided that maybe it was time to listen to the doctor and give my ankles a chance to recover from Achilles Tendonitis. As this was my first walk in over a month and the first test for my ankles I wanted something that was both short and over easy terrain.

A lovely spot for a seat. I sat here listening to the sound of Halldale Brook far below me.

Halldale Brook.


I assume it's an old barn as there are no windows, but the chimney seems out of place.
