On Wednesday 15 th June eight members of Biggar Ramblers enjoyed a seven mile circular walk around the spectacular hill hollow of The Devil’s Beeftub north of Moffat.
 They started from a forestry track by the A701 and walked along a path, which is the start of the Annandale Way, over 3 hilltops offering great views south as far as the Lake District. On reaching a large cairn they turned down the valley of Tweed Hope through a native Scottish woodland planted around 12 years ago by the Borders Forest Trust. The group had a pleasant lunch stop by a sheltered stream and continued down into the valley. At the foot of the hills they enjoyed views of sheer sided hills that make up the Devil’s Beef Tub before following farm tracks back up the hillside and back to the starting point. It was a sunny afternoon and a fairly strenuous uphill walk to complete the circuit, a tiring end to a great walk.
