From Deer Law to Conscleuch Head, over boggy beallach.LizH14/02/2019
Last day of a New Year week in Peebles. Parked where the RoW leading to the Megget Reservoir leaves the Manorhead road. Space for about 3 cars. Enjoyed a very easy stroll up to the pile of stones marking the high point of the RoW. An ATV track/path leads easily W to the summit of Greenside Law. Back to the RoW making a short detour for the S summit. The next bit was much easier than it looked. A path leads E to a shed & then continues faintly down Black Rig to cross the burn at about NT212259. Paths rise beside a stream coming to an ATV track passing underneath Conscleuch Head & straight to Deer Law. Switchbacked along the fenceline over Conscleuch Head to Black Law summit. Returned to SW top of Black Law & followed fence WSW to pt598m on Redsike Head. Faint sheep tracks slanted down easily W to rejoin the RoW back to the start. Cold & overcast but with decent views except for Dollar Law which was firmly stuck in cloud all day. A good round when the ground is frozen.NotReallyABagger04/01/2019
