We camped at Lamlash and walked to the picnic area at Dyemill. there is a very pleasant path from here that leads up to Loch Urie.

The views back to Holy Island would be superb on a clear day.

About 50m southwest of the trig point is a cairn that appears higher and actually the gps showed it at 460m

We decided to make a circular walk (bad idea :lol: ) and head north towards the road following the Sguiler Burn for most of the way. The route across to the burn was very boggy and we had to do a lot of "thinking light" as we bog hopped.

There was some good humour as we listened to Keith "chuntering" down the gully

We then turned into the trees and headed up to the road through Monamore Glen

Finally we were back in daylight and clearish walking to reach the road

It was a fitting end to walk down Monamore Glen because there had been quite a bit of mourning going on but it was all good fun. :lol:
