May 10th Day 10 Scotland at Last!

Today's Track

Although the rain started as I left Lazonby, it soon turned showery and eventually stopped. Today's picture is of Newbiggin Fell, repleat with dry stone walls.

The route today passed through a few small villages. The terrain was, for the most part, undulating.

I crossed into Scotland on a minor road with no signs or other indication. Where I crossed it, the border actually runs down the middle of Liddel Water, a tributary of the Esk.

In Langholm, I met a group of cyclists out on a day tour from Dumfries. We talked of routes and experiences.

The major climb of the day was the section from Langholm to Eskdalemuir through the Eskdalemuir forest.
