The group of fancy dressed runners slowly descended on Roslin, a few Lab technicians and a robot were joined by a wolf with the final coven of witches arriving to make 18 runners in total.
We headed off down Manse Road and into the Spooky “Witchy Wood” and on along to the old Ice House before winding our way through the trees to the Bilston Viaduct.
Then we travelled to the Hewan Bank and along the Esk to opposite Hawthornden Castle over fallen trees and lots of mud. The landslips in Roslin Glen meant a diversion into the fields was the order of the night so we missed the slippy riverside path.
After regrouping we headed along to Roslin Castle. Then through Roslin Country Park and up the road to Roslin Castle Station and along the railway Cycle way.
The fast downhill towards the Old Gunpowder Mill was rewarded with an excellent Fireworks Display in the ruins. Thanks to Nick MacDonald and Bob Waterhouse.
Then we ran along the Esk and Back to past Roslin Chapel to The Original Rosslyn Inn for some beer and food along with the passing round of Nick’s scary mask.
A good fun night.
