Run No 55 is on Thursday 2nd September, Bowhill Estate, Nr Selkirk

Venue is the main car park in the Bowhill Estate, near Selkirk.


Get yourself on the Selkirk to Moffat road (A708?) leaving Selkirk. Head towards Moffat/St/ Mary's Loch for around 2 miles. Take the Left turn (probably signed Bowhill + Ettrick valley or summat like that) , and go immediately across the Generals Bridge. Just after the bridge, turn Right into the estate. Follow the estate road round to the left (when it forks, take the left), and through the tress towards the big house. Just as you approach the large ornamental gates, take the right fork (goes uphill). Car park is another 100m on the left.

There's even a proper pub, that's been properly organised to go to after - The Cross Keys in Ettrickbridge. Usually two real ales on, so bring yer drinking trousers.

As usual, everyone welcome - what better way to get out in the countryside in the glorious late Summer. Might need to think about bringing a torch and change of clothes and footwear - it's not that Summer-y.

Hares are Heavenly Body and Dull Fud
