Culter Fell stands at 2,454ft and next to it is Chapelgill Hill at 2,283ft. These hills were the objective of Biggar Ramblers on October 26. Normally Culter Fell is climbed from the west side starting at Culter Allers Farm but on this occasion, with both hills on the walk, the start was in Glenholm near Broughton. The group, led by Brian Henry, consisted of six walkers. Starting at Glenkirk the walk was along the floor of the valley until the cottage at Holms Waterhead. Then to the rear of the cottage Holms Water was crossed and the ascent of Leishfoot Hill was started. The route on the hill was alongside the fence which will be a track through a new forest plantation inside a deer fence where Douglas Firs and native broadleaves trees will be planted. Further up Leishfoot the group left the area to be forested and began the ascent proper of Culter Fell. At the summit the views extended to the Pentlands, the Moffat hills and the high rise flats at Motherwell. However, the wind chill kicked in and making time for a photograph the group moved northwards towards Kings Bank Head en-route to Chapelgill Head. Once out of the wind, a lunch break was welcomed. Then it was over Kings Bank Head and a turn eastwards towards the summit of Chapelgill Hill. From that high position the complete walk so far undertaken could be seen from the start, up Leishfoot and over Culter Fell. Then it was downhill all the way, all 1,300 feet to the start, although a heavy rain shower marred the descent but not the spirit of the walkers who appreciated another good day on the hill.
