I live in theBorders. We've had a very very WET winter the ground is still sodden depite the recent dry period. There may be a few patches of snow on the tops but not much. The whole of that area is VERY rough ground underfoot…. the worst Tussock grass (arm pit high) I've ever had to deal with. On paths of course will be OK but cutting across country will a bog snorkling hell hole. Have a great time .
