Kevin Foster bagged Bloodybush Edge on October 24th, 2018 [from/via/route] Walk n140 via Cushat Law. [with] Henry. [weather] Fine, Sunny but very breezy. - The uninspiring but easy trudge across peaty boggy moor to Bloodybush Edge was just about worth it. Again good views of The Cheviot Hills & westwards I could make out the prominent cairn on Windy Gyle. Sadly I'll have to leave that for another day. A very pleasant descent to the lovely secluded valley of Uswaydale topped off a great walk.
