You went via Abington rather than the route suggested above?
Any reason why?
Mainly because Carlisle to Abington has only one big hill (Beattock Summit) along the route. It’s probably the easiest route available. There’s a 12 yo girl en route at the moment she came that way yesterday and has made the Forth today. Also a campsite at Abington fell in around the right distance. Look at record attempts they use Abington or the A701 Beef Tub. viewtopic.php?t=120240&start=540
