From Wedder Leap car park: Hindside Knowe (sub4) -> Swineside Law -> Mozie Law S Top -> Beefstand Hill -> Mozie Law -> Windy Rig -> Windy Gyle -> Ward Law -> Shorthope Hill -> Barrow Law (sub4). 20k, heavy rain most of the way round.jonglew05/11/2019
Up The Street to Swineside Law, then on to Mozie Law. After checking out both the Scottish & English sides, headed eastwards along the Pennine Way to Windy Rig and Windy Gyle (loved the paving stones over the boggy bits). Back to the car grassy along tracks, taking in Ward Law and Shorthorpe Hill en route. 3.15hrs.summitter25/05/2019
With Jo, from Trows Road End cp: followed track past Rowhope to Murder Cleugh then BW to south until ENE of Shorthope Hill before crossing fence at a hurdle to gate in fence east of summit. Returned to BW then deviated over Barrow Law to road. Weather, sunny, warm with good visibility.amblerbob12/05/2018
From The Middle at dusk. Headed south down steep but easy slope and road back to Blindburn. 5 hours 20mins. Feeling unusually tired, cursed myself for not pitching the tent before walking. Intended spot too hard to get pegs in so spent reasonably comfortable night in the car. Which meant I didn't have to strike camp in the midges. All's well that ends well.Wycombe Wanderer26/08/2017
Circuit from Barrowburn. Kyloe Shin - Middle Hill - The Middle - Uswayford - Lint Lands - Uswayford - Ward Hill and Shorthope Hill.Moorponder11/07/2017
