The College Burn, The Henhole and Hill Forts

 The plan was to walk up The College Burn from Hethpool to The Henhole and then up onto Cheviot. However by the time we reached The Henhole the wind was blowing a hooley.
 So we had a change of plan and walked up onto the boarder ridge and along to the refuge.
 With the wind now behind us we walked along to The Schil 601m 
 We then followed the interestingly named Black Hag ridge and onto Blackhaggs Rigg.
 Surprisingly for this area the ridge was not boggy at all !!!
 So I nice stroll down a very pleasant ridge to the fort make on the map at 373 meters
A pause for contemplation before the walk back to Hethpool
