Not a good day for walking due to low cloud and rain, but it was better than sitting in the house.

The car park off the A73 was easy to find and the path wide and distinct. I hate the scree/loose stones put down on the path for walking up and much prefer grass!

Persistent rain and low cloud meant that after climbing to the first top about 450m the view into the valley disappeared. This is probably a good walk...on a clear day but I didnt think it was worth it with zero viability at the top.

However....its done and I can plan the next one :-)
