Ascent Trip ReportOn our last day in Scotland, my wife and I were still hunting for Highland Coos to hang out with despite having spent the last week or so meandering through the highlands. Swanston Farm has a herd and invites visitors to come hike through their pasture, so we decided to give that a shot on our way out of Edinburgh. Given the hot weather, the coos had meandered up to ridgeline so we ended up near the top anyway. A quick GPS scan indicated that Allermuir was probably a Marilyn, so we headed up to check it off. We ended up doing almost 4 miles and 1000+ feet of elevation gain and finished off with a nice full Scottish breakfast at the farm cafe.
