<p>Dramatic mood swings with the light and cloud meant no direction looked the same during a walk in the Southern Uplands &amp; no scene stayed the same for long.<br />
Is it just my imagination or is there a ghost drifting in from right.</p>			<p><a href="http://www.flickr.com/people/daviemain/">Davie Main</a> posted a photo:</p>

<p>Standing proudly overlooking Talla in the Tweedsmuir Hills stands the last remnants of an old iron fence. Still embedded in its rock like &quot;Excalibur&quot; it looks like it will still be standing for a few more wind battered years to come. Directly behind Excalibur runs a huge line of modern deer fencing built to protect the reforestation of the lower slopes.</p>			<p><a href="http://www.flickr.com/people/daviemain/">Davie Main</a> posted a photo:</p>

Britain is blessed with some seriously world-class coastline, and arguably a good chunk of it can be found in the Southwest of England. From personal experience, I can also heartily recommend the coast around St. Abbs Head in the Scottish Borders. Lisabet and I have been there before, two years ago in fact, so we visited the area again recently whilst staying for a week based in Aberlady, 20-miles east of Edinburgh.</p>			<p><a href="http://www.flickr.com/people/27828336@N00/">Bob the courier</a> posted a photo:</p>

<p>Craigdilly as seen from the south. I love some of the hill names given to the southern uplands... I passed over the queerly named &quot;Gool Knowe&quot;, &quot;Muckle Knees&quot; (big knees) &amp; &quot;The Strypes&quot; today on my walk. &quot;Paper Hill&quot; is not that far away either. More upland Plateau than hills to be honest but what they lack in stature they make up for it with their crackin names.</p>			<p><a href="http://www.flickr.com/people/g0cqk/">g0cqk</a> posted a photo:</p>
