Fantastic frost and sunshine. Circular walk from west along undulating ridge to Whitehope Heights, then around to north via all tops on the way. With the two spaniels, R, Mike and Mandy.jenx30/11/2019
Parked at track entrance off A701 above Devil's Beef Tub. Walked over Annandale Hill to Chalk Rig Edge on one of the best ridge walks in the area and the only one where we saw anyone this week. We continued our walk to Whitehope Heights. From there we returned back over Chalk Rig Edge and the Annandale Way to a little gorge which gives dramatic views of the Devil's Beef Tub. We turned away and struggled over tussocks to a sheepfold where we picked up ATV tracks to the HP. Then to pt 503m., tracks to forest ride leading back to the starting point. Good views in fine weather. With brother, Petepwheeler18/09/2019

Walked over from Annanhead Hill in mist and rain. Followed the forest fence at first and then ascended on compass bearing. The summit being at the far end of a flat ridge meant more navigation.JohnW29/05/2019
