Visited with P61, guarded with cattle quick pic & run down the hill. Off to The Robert The Bruce Wetherspoons in Dumfries next, for a well earned pint.

Walked in on muddy tracks from the main road,then up the main ridge trig surrounded by cattle settled for night who stampede whilst at trig had to make a run for it.

From track junction just east of Tinwald, straightforward apart from tight parking. Platform raised a few inches by cattle no doubt. Quick add-on after a few Dewey Donalds.

No view - fog. Ground near trig churned over.
