Parked as carolengel with permission from family. Very pleasant easy walk through fields of cattle and sheep with lambs then up dry grassy slopes

Parked at the bridge then basically walked through the farmyard and followed the track through a couple of fields onto the open fell. An easy to follow grassy rake to almost the top then through the heather for the last few hundred yards. Contours suggested it would be steep but didn't look too bad from the car - the contours were right, or perhaps my aged limbs aren't so suited to this anymore. Good views from the top on a clear sunny winters day.

Came up from Durisdeer, via Glenleith Fell. Views to Criffel. Found an empty whisky bottle beside the pillar, which presumably was left by the last visitor. Is this the secret to Rob's astronomical bagging totals - he's powered by Glenfiddich?
