From Carter Bar. Would have been very wet underfoot but thankfully all ice.Campbell Singer18/12/2017
Up from Carter Bar. Walking against the clock. Blue skies, very windy (almost blowing me over), bog, bog, bog... knee deep in bog several times. Looks like the ground has almost fully recovered from the bikes. Absolutely stunning views and beautiful solitude... lots of tourists at Carter Bar though. 1.5 hours there and back including stoppage time for filming.NorthernWayfarer25/10/2017
With Jenx and Bryher from Carter Bar viewpoint and tea hut. Trail spoilt by bikes. Immediately after gate jump the fence to left to avoid boggy sections. When thru far gate aim up to border fence and at small gate get into its North side. A half decent path all way, still a bog trot but much better than South side which has been churned up by retched trailbikes. Excellent views all around. Lashings of tea when we returned to lay-bynordicstar23/09/2017

A hot day from Carters bar layby. Very boggy and mossy underfoot makes it a hill with little interest other than the great views of the Cheviot's, Eildon Hills, Ruber Law, Tinto and others. Saw a herd of wild goats numbering about thirty in total.thenomad31/05/2014
