Over Wind Hill to the third Marilyn of the day after Capel Fell and Croft Head. Pleasant, especially after Wind Hill. The W ridge down Ettrick Pen had a worn path to Potburn. Just before Potburn there's a bothy that would be handy for some big >1 day walks but it was very busy with forestry and excavation in Sep 2014. Got back to the car within 5 mins of my brother, who did Andrewhinney Hill instead today.pwheeler21/09/2014
