Marilyn Bagging In the Southern Uplands Part 1

Back up the M6 and M74 into the Borders today, and then over into Upper Tweed Dale parking at Hearthstane. Broad Law was the first target of the trip...although at this point there was no definite plan......
It's possible to park near the bridge which gives access to the cluster of houses and farm of Hearthstane.

Once through the farmyard you follow the forest road, the shoulder of Broad Law is the high point in the background.

Once out of the forestry the view opens out to the North the track also gives access to the radio transmitter so provides good going all the way to the top.
Here I'm looking North to Culter Fell

The summit, close cropped grass just the place for a spot of lunch!
As I say easy going I was suprised to find it had only taken 75mins.
This is the view roughly South towards Hart Fell 

Back past the wonderful radio transmitter, looking very sci-fi!
I returned to the car the same way, planning the next part of my trip....more to follow.
