|I was a nice clear night as 6 of us headed for Arthur’s Seat.|
A bit more roady than normal, and longer that I had promised Lindsay, but what the hell. We crossed Prestonfield to the innocent railway and took the 7 hills gully route to the summit via the “bad step” which was dry and innocuous.
The views from the summit were lovely and as we retraced our steps we went for the traverse above the aforementioned step. But Irene crumpled under the pressure as her ankle gave way with a slight crack. After the worry of an emergency evacuation from the hill for a a minute or two, Irene showed her “Carnethy Grit” and got herself down and back to KB at a careful , if painful, jog.
4.9 miles in an hour and a half (64 minutes moving time!).
Irene is now sporting a moon boot, Get well soon.
