The Devil's Pulpit a first look
The surrounding countryside gave no hint of the drastic turn the burn had taken here. It cut through what must be an extreemly soft bit of sandstone. I followed the rim of the chasm trying to get a better look. The trees and frosty conditions didn't make this easy.
After a short walk I found the old steps down to the burn. These were, I guess, Victorian and in a sorry state.
I took my time getting down the steps mostly clinging to the greasy rope that some kind soul had left. The bottom was worth the worry, the mist adding some special effects to thelimpid burn, wrecked trees and soft red cliff.
Again my photos do not do the place justice. I plan to return in warmer weather when you could have a chilly wade further up the chasim.
