NT1730 : Kirkhope and the Manor Valley

taken 15 years ago, 5 km from Bellspool, Scottish Borders, Great Britain

Kirkhope and the Manor Valley
Kirkhope and the Manor Valley
The long dry ridge running over Pikethaw and Dollar Law is an obvious route for travel, wide open views, nowhere for evildoers to hide, yet the name given to this ancient ridgeway is the Thieves Road. Perhaps once English cattle were driven this way - or Scottish cattle the other way?
The picture shows the eastern drop off from the ridge/plateau down to the Manor Water via the side glen of Kirkhope. There is a good path (shown by Harveys and on the 1:25:000 Ordnance Survey map) down to Kirkhope from here.
