We rode to Coalcleugh where we stopped some time and then proceeded to Brackensike ec. seeing Boretin Force, a romantic little cascade on our way.   We had a luncheon at Coalcleugh and returned to Allenheads to a late dinner.   The day was fine and I was much pleased with my excursion.   I rode above 20 miles and walked a good deal without suffering from fatigue.   I think the air of the heaths and mountains always agrees with me....We found Mr. Johnson, Mr. Beaumont's Steward at Allenheads.
