Just rolled into the flat after a dawn raid in the Pentlands – was at the top of Allermuir Hill for about 5:50, 12 minutes after sunrise. Pics to follow.
Felt great to be riding home past the rat race on the way to work, and now I've got the rest of the day at my leisure (+ the next 3 weeks 😀 )
Oh yeah, and there was a very attractive lady smuggling peanuts who joined me at the top of Allermuir. Lady, I salute you for wearing only tiny shorts and top at 6am on the top of a Scottish hill. And God, I thank you! 😉
Nice pics. I wonder what the best sunrise viewpoint in the Pentlands is? I was thinking perhaps West Kip or East Cairn Hill as you'd then get the sunrise over the main part of the Pentlands.
I've actually camped on top of both of those, hoping for a good sunrise but on West Kip I was chased off the hill in the early hours due to approaching lightning, and on East Cairn Hill the top of the hill was in the clouds come daylight and I could see bugger all.
