Look out for the Historic Buildings sign confirming that you are on part of Dere Street. It was 7 metres wide, and gravel for its construction was quarried Linn Dean Water from the pits beside the road. On the way back from Kirktonhill, slightly firmer ground can be reached by walking over Turf Law and, after a deviation to the west, over Dun Law. This last section contains the wind farm, as if you had not noticed! It is a slightly spooky feeling walking under the humming giants, hoping that the large turbine blades are well secured.

After half a mile turn to the left for North Slipperfield and park (not by the clubhouse parking area) nearby at map ref 140520 for the track and right of way that runs on the southeast side of the hill. Shortly later you will see the right of way signposts: ‘four miles to Dolphinton’ on the forward route and ‘three miles to Garvald’ on the return route. The track crosses the West Water and passes South Slipperfield Farm, mostly near or by a charming wooded area. You are actually walking on another road – not that you would know it – for the track follows the line of a Roman Road and there are good views south to Broughton Heights.

I had suggested the good road into the glen as a possibility for another walk for his disabled ramblers group. I was keen to follow the Glensax Burn all the way to its source by Glenrath Heights, traverse north on the plateau to Hundleshope Heights, then descend on a northeast ridge over Dead Side and so return to Peebles. We had a leisurely stroll up Glen Sax, pausing for an early lunch outside Glensax at the end of the mapped track. In fact the track continues in grassy form for over a 28 Borders mile, criss-crossing the burn many a time.
