Description:-
The climb from Hownam following "The Street"(old roman Road) starts of steep on a good farm track through a couple of gates, the further up the grasser the track gets. at the 300m countor you go through a gate here you head right. Note - there is a strong path going straight on which takes you down to Belford in the Bowmont Valley(not been down it yet). Traverse along the side of the hill down to a gate at the 300m coll beween Windy Law and Big Law. Through gate then a tough climb up grass track to a point at 419m then a short down hill on a rather washed out track to another coll. Go through 2 gates on the left and up round the side of the hill on a roughish track on the climb which then turns grassy as it levels out a little. Follow the street up for 2 to 3KM to road sign (ordering no vehciles between 1st April to 31 May!) near a gate near the top of the ridge go through the gate on the right and up the rough track once it levels out you come on to the Pennine Way. Turn left on to this and follow this up and over the 561m unnamed top decend a little go through a gate on the left and follow the good track round and down the hill and on to Windy Ridge for a really really fast descent down Kelsocleuch Ridge. need to go through a hunting gate at the edge of the felled wood down this track to the bottom of the wood turn left and go along the bottom of the wood turn right on to a track to take you down the side of the wood and then through a gate on to a farm track at the edge of the Black Burn. Down to Cocklawfoot to then heed up Clennell Street up to the Bordergate/ridge(this is a LONG hard CLIMB of 300m takes about 1hr) where you join the Pennine Way again follow this on large limestone flag stones up to the summit of Windy Gyle at 619m. Continue on the Pennine Way to Mozie Law where you climb over the fence and push the bike a little until you can see the strat of the track the takes you done all the way back to Hownam, This decent is fast and realy good fun.
