A lovely ride on a quiet road. Apart from four timber lorries and a mobile library van, we saw maybe two cars.
Ettrick Water is a delightful river, much like a mini-Tweed, clear, fast flowing with a rocky or pebbly bed.
The road from Ettrick village is not a through road, and from the cottage to the end of the surfaced road at Potburn climbs very gently.
Harry rode further along the track from here, while I sauntered back taking snaps.
The weather started sunny and warm, though we did have a heavy shower before we got back.
