ALL PHOTOS CLICK FULL SIZEWhen Graeme suggested a border bagging trip near Pebbles I didn't need a second invitation as the scenery is beautiful in that district at any time of year. This is Neidpath Castle just outside Peebles.
I visited here a couple of years back for the first time with Alex but I'm always happy to go back to areas I really enjoyed and this is one of them. We parked near Orchard Mains then set off on foot. It's a perfect backdrop for film locations or just for a wander around the estate. Tennant History Here.
A link here to the official Glen web site which has some great photographs taken within the grounds of this 5000 acre estate.
Video is one Alex found a while ago of the infamous El Chorro Gorge and its crumbling, vertigo inducing, walkway in Spain. It's meant to be closed and off limits until a new, safer path can be built along it but folk still attempt it even in its current condition. Sensational when watched full screen.
Reputedly, one of the most dangerous walkways in the world now so a big tick on adrenalin junkies lists. I think I'll give it a miss until the new path is constructed. Best watched with the music turned down very low at it tends to irritate rather than enhance. Astonishing achievement to build this concrete ribbon in the first place when most of it travels across vertical walls of rock held in place by rusting metal supports and occasionally, wooden posts hammered hopefully into deep cracks.
