As it was a excellent afternoon for a walk I decided to put my depleted energy levels to the test and head along towards Jimmy's Brae and the Meikleholm. The going was a slippy so I went with caution.
A Fairytale Appeal
When We Were Boys
As you pass the cottage the track bends to the right and leads past Meikleholm Side and up towards Meikleholm hill. After about 300yds the track bears left along the foot of the hill towards the Becks Burn. When we were boys we would go as far up the track as possible and sledge all the way down and with some skilful negotiation and lots of luck you could end up on Eskdale Street. Thank goodness there was less traffic in those days. Today's condition was perfect for this but sadly there wasn't sledge to be seen.
