Rotten Bottom Peat Bogs
On the high and rather flat barren landscape between the upper summits lies an area with the aptly named Rotten Bottom. Be aware when out on this area. The name suits the area well as this is a serious peat bog and can be dangerous to cross in certain weather conditions. The water that lies in the area can be very deep and you must choose your route across here carefully. This area mainly affects routes between the ridges of Saddle Yoke and the summits of White Coomb and Firthhope Rig. If you take this route and go the wrong way through it you may end up with very wet feet or in the worst case getting yourself stuck in the dark rotting peat...! There are other areas wet and boggy in the hills but the Rotten Bottom is definitely the worse.
