Day 57 Innerleithen to Peebles

2nd June 2018

Weather: Hot & humid start. First rumbles of thunder at 10:40 Rain in Peebles from 13:30, with thunderstorms forecast for the rest of the afternoon.

The “5 miles” route along the tarmac’d former railway line was pleasant enough, spoiled only by the noise of traffic on a nearby road. It was also a gauntlet of barking, snappy dogs. Why do dog owners think it’s funny? Also notable for kamikaze snails crossing the path in baking sunshine.

A “Tweedside path” sign misled me to a dead-end and fence-climb. A pleasant riverside walk into the busy Saturday shopping centre of Peebles. At 12km, it was half as much again as I was expecting, but still the shortest ‘day’ so far.

May your feet stay dry as you walk through the bog. May your face be unblemished as you walk in the sunshine.

  1. Only 5 miles! Were the kamikaze snails overtaking you today then?

    Following you from Devon now, we are still checking up on you!
