Trying to recover from a cold and test myself to see if I was prepared for the Glentress Duathlon, I went for a walk up Tinto from the south. It's quite different from this direction when compared to coming in from the north. The sun hits the southern slopes all day and the route is far less obvious. I struggled up the hill, but the effort was rewarded with a fine view from the summit. More photos on my Flickr page .
