After a last minute change of plans thanks to the Scottish weather we ventured south to the Moffat Hills to take in the stunning views of one of Scotland's tallest waterfalls the Grey Mare's Tail, whilst on route to White Coomb. The waterfalls look absolutely stunning and are worth the journey alone. After gearing up in the car park we were soon warmly welcomed by the local midges who feasted on us until we were almost at Loch Skeen! Undeterred we continued on and were blessed with a stunning view of the loch, however thanks to changeable conditions our views from the tops of the hills were a bit hit or miss, with White Coomb summit being covered in cloud. We still thoroughly enjoyed the walk and would recommend to anyone looking for something to do that isn't a Munro.

Enjoy the video:
