I have this walk planned for a trip south in a couple of weeks. Did you go clockwise or anti?

Over the years this, and variations of it, has been one of my favourite walks, and the Southern Uplands at their best. I have always done it in an anticlockwise direction starting with Carlavin Hill. If you are travelling a long way you could consider extending to White Coomb to include a Corbett.

The only possible drawback to this walk is that, if you rely on Landranger maps, you will need to take 3 sheets, 72, 78 & 79, probably not a problem as nearly everyone uses GPS or phone these days, or in my case the back of my hand!
