Dean Castle via Borland

WALK REPORT: 13th January 2016

A child-free day and a lovely crisp morning so I put on my hiking boots and set off on a one of my favourite walks through Dean Castle Country Park. It was so nice to walk at my normal pace and with no buggies to worry about. On a cold day like today you don’t want to be hanging around! What I particularly loved was how cheery everyone I passed was – each and every person took the time to smile and wish me a good morning. It took me back to my hillwalking days as a child. Why is it that people greet each other so freely when out in the countryside but the same people would walk past each other on the street??
