My legs were tired for this one. A 2 hour ride over with fully loaded panniers meant I wasn't going go very fast. This was still a pretty good run though. No big mistakes.
My route to #7 took me through a lot of heather. As a result, I seemed to have lost time there.
Leaving #7, I used the veg boundary as a handrail, but that meant more heather. Should have gone straight south. I lost more time close to the circle for #8. It was hard to see the map in the gloom and didn't realise there were lots of clearings or a little path, so I cut in too early when I saw the first clearing.
Exiting #8, I thought I might be able to stay high, but the stream looked too dodgy to cross.http://www.mdoc.routegadget.co.uk/rg2/#290&rou...
