Nine members of the Biggar Ramblers undertook the 7 mile loop up to the ‘Three Brethren’ cairns from Yarrowford, near Selkirk. In sunshine and blustery conditions the trig point at 1500 ft was reached in a little over 2 hours. The breeze had cleared any haze and glorious views were enjoyed of the Eildon hills, down onto Clovenfords to the north and far along the Yarrow valley to the south west. The group managed to consume their lunch just before an unwelcome shower dampened proceedings. Fortunately it was short lived and the expansive views were restored as the walkers made their way along the old Drovers road which forms part of the Southern Upland Way. At the end of the walk the group retired to the Waterwheel cafe at Philiphaugh for a well earned cup of tea.
