Penvalla > White Meldon > Cademuir Hill activations report


#2

Excellent reporting Phil,

Great pictures in great country. Wish I knew the derivation of Penvalla (Super hill and setting). I looked, but did not find it. Pen is old Welsh for flat (hill) and appears in several border hill descriptions. Valla sounds Norse but do not know.
.
Regards
David

Many thanks for the excellent report and photos Phil and the contact from Cademuir. I was surprised to see Cademuir denuded - much better for 2m which proved to be a no-go when Paul and I activated the summit. I was hoping for a Complete with Penvalla, but conditions were not running in my favour at that time of day.
