16 September 1921 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

Was sick when dressing this morning but improved after. I had almost nothing to do so I walked to the Eildons1. It was an absolutely perfect day with a cool N.E. wind + perfectly clear atmosphere. I spent 11/2 hours on top + saw everything possible. In the rock area chair [?] it was sheltered + warm. I had a little chocolate + that was all I had between breakfast + dinner except a W. + S.2 when I got home. A good many people at night.

1 The Eildon Hills, Melrose

2 Whisky and Soda
