||The rain went off as the Easy Social run set off. Eleven of us including 4 New Runners (Corina, Clarissa, Sarah and Tracy) headed south across Craigmillar Park and the thorny bridge (sorry David not a night for shorts) then up to Braids. Across the Braids Tenth and then a direct line to the south east corner of Braids. Then up by Meadowhead Farm and a quick look at The Stable Bar, (I was dragged away pintless) and then past Buckstone Primary. Then with a quick turn in to Mortonhall Golf Course we took a direct route to the Masts and on to the Trig. Then a direct route back made up 4.8 miles in 68 minutes. A personal Best for me (new routes are my only chance now)!
Back at KB we arrived just as the Social run arrived from their Arthur’s Seat via Craigmillar run, good timing for a shared pint.
||12.7 miles, 2,993ft ascent, 2hr 7min
Three in the fast group tonight, and we headed towards the Pentlands via Braidburn Park following the burn to Redford Woods and then under the bypass at Dreghorn. Initially gloopy mud, and then increasingly deep fresh snow the higher we went. We skirted Capelaw to the coll and ran the Allermuir/Caerketton ridge down to The Steading, back to KB via Mortonhall/Liberton Tower. KB bar was shut, so no beer 🙁
