Notes: By far and away the best day of the four, with good sunshine and and warm even from the start. The climb up to Byrness Hill is interesting and I stopped at the top to change almost all my clothes as it was so warm. Chris had managed to get his rucksack transported to Barrowburn and he offered to carry my pack for a couple of hours in the middle of the day - I'm glad he did too, as the height gain today really hurt. I found myself crawling slowly up the bigger climbs. The descent from Windy Gyle down to Barrowburn was excellent, with some wonderful views along a mostly great track, until the tarmac. Barrowburn's Deer Hut is excellent too - a great place to base yourself for the Cheviots. A grand day!
