... undertaking a great challenge this summer. As I write, she is flying out to Swaziland as part of a team from her school. As a team they are building a soup kitchen for an orphanage. It's a great project, one that Lucy has been determined to take part in and has been actively involved on fundraising for. So Rob and I came down to cheer her on ...

... up in Haltwhistle) so, after a quick lunch, we bade Peter goodbye, hopeful that we will together again in the next week or two. We started walking west along the wall. Those of you who have done it before, will know that this walk is deceptive. You anticipate that being a wall, it will be a level walk. In fact, this section of the wall, Housesteads to Greenhead is the complete opposite with dramatic, steep ups and downs. So after a couple of miles, our knees and slabs of meat that ...

... at Shitlington Crag Farm, so we had to push on after our tea. As has been so often the case, we have been given a wonderful welcome by Jo and Alastair. They are not charging us. Rather they immediately welcomed us in, gave us a beer and a scone (great combination!) followed by a wonderful lamb stew with dumplings! Fortunately we had brought a bottle as a thank you. This and another ...

... reading required. So Dere Street, with the occasional bend and lot of ups, delivered us efficiently to the Pennine Way.... effectively this will be our "home" for the next ten days as we head south through North England. Rob is concerned that as we leave Scotland, we are leaving behind the really wild, remote landscapes and that therefore the walking will be less interesting. By contrast I am excited as, for me, walking the Pennine Way is ...

Today was a day of contrasts, governed by the weather. We woke to steady drizzle. I got up early and walked down to the Kirk. Amazingly at 7am the church was open and seemed exactly as it was 22 years ago. After an excellent breakfast with the Sandersons, Lord Sanderson kindly gave us a lift into Melrose, where we met up again with Paul. Given we had a shortish day planned and it was raining harder, we decided we needed a warm up ...

    Poor value for money

    Rooms were tidy and clean, but disappointed that rooms were changed from those booked.. No information in rooms about the Hotel or history of castle. (told in process of upgrade, but would have preferred the old information rather than nothing!) Party noise late at night which kept us up,( as the Castle is often used for weddings, guests stay pre and post wedding so appears can be noisy ) Breakfast a real disappointed for a mid range Hotel. The buffet part of the breakfast was budget, limited cereals, minimal fruit, 3 pastries on a plate, 2 juices. Most of these ran out an the waiter had little time to re-fill. No hot drinks were on buffet, so had to order them via the waiter which was a long wait, and when came only enough for one hot drink. Getting a top up almost impossible. Ordered full cooked breakfast but was only 1/2 the size you would expect. So the breakfast took 2 -3 times as long as it should with everything coming through the waiter and was only half the quality you would expect.
