On the TGO Challenge with Sue - Hill 32, on a great day from Broom Hill to Tarfside. Yes, we were the 19 May visitors - just beating clashcityrocker to be first in the visitors book. It's a great place though, and there's plenty of room both in the book and by The Water of Unich for a magnificent wild camp.Phreerunner19/05/2015
