Carter Bar to the Trouting

The next part of the border walk was hard going, taking me through very rough, tussocky heather and peat bogs. Fortunately there was a mini heatwave so I enjoyed some amazing views. From here it’s easy to see the difference in geology and the more fertile ground of the Scottish side as the green hills sweep across the horizon towards Jedburgh and Kelso.
