Durham and North East reach New Heights

“Rob did warn Gary and myself that it was going to be a long day but not where to.

It turned out to be the highest village in Scotland, Wanlockhead 1531 feet above sea level.

The village was built up around the lead mining in the area. There is a lead mining museum and a narrow gauge railway.

It’s a must see place if you are in the area.

The short cut road had grass growing in the middle of the road along with plenty of pot holes to test our riding skills.

The weather was good and the views great as well as the company. This was a saddlesore rideout”.
