Four Marilyns between Moffatt and Berwick

Walk summary
Looking NE along flooded Ettrick Water
on way down from Cacra Hill
Woke up this morning at 5am and unable to get back to sleep.
For those of you that know me you may have an idea why I was awake. But rather than laying there dwelling I decided to get up early and make an early start on the move from Moffat Camping and Caravanning Club Site
Not because all objectives have been achieved, that did not happen because of the exceptionally wet weather, but because it was time to make my way east to meet Gina off the train in Alnmouth tomorrow.
Plan is to knock off the two Marilyns in Glen Ettrick I could not manage at the same time as Law Kneis & Ward Law last week. Then fit in as many of the surrounding Marilyns around Galashiels before heading to Berwick YHA.
Only managed Sell Moor Hill around Galashiels but that still brought the days total to three which was half as many as I managed during the eight days based in Moffat.
