FOUR Biggar Ramblers tackled the southern end of the Pentlands ridge on Sunday, February 11.

A fresh fall of snow overnight and an icy wind made the going quite hard. Drifting snow covered the Monk’s Rig track that leads from Nine Mile Burn to the foot of West Kip.

The shortened route took in the three tops of West Kip, East Kip and Scald Law, the Pentlands highest point.

Some stunning views but the uncertain terrain and driving wind meant heads down for much of the time.

The return route was past Eastfield Farm and onto the Braid Law track. A total of seven miles.
