White Coomb by the Grey Mare's Tail
White Coomb is the highest of the Moffat hills; this route to it climbs past the spectacular Grey Mare's Tail waterfall before making a circuit of the hills around Loch Skeen.
Excellent path at first. Boggy and intermittent from Loch Skeen up to ridge, then broad ridges.
None to start.
Grey Mare's Tail car park.
