Rambling on the Ross peninsula
The last time we travelled this route, the weather let us down, with poor visibility and rain such that half the group abandoned the walk soaked through at the half way point! Today promised some recompense for our 15 starters, with a forecast of pleasant temperatures and guaranteed sunshine. So it was in an optimistic mood we strolled across the beach from Brighouse Bay car park to pass through the gate into the field and turned uphill over grass. After a short time we reached the brow of the hill with its prospect of Ross Bay and the Dee estuary beyond, all the way to Robin Rigg windfarm in the Solway Firth, the Lakeland hills round the Saint Bee’s Head and the Isle of Man.
