Thought about cutting across early to Carlin's Cairn, but just went to Corserine, then down about 100m and up to the massive Carlin's Cairn.

Back on Corserine for a wee break

From here there's a couple of wee cairns which leads you onto a wee " path" heading down and up to Millfire- boggy and wet in places.

Down to the wall and follow this down to where the path you're on cuts off from the wall and heads down the steep bit - wee scrambly wet steep bit today!!! As always take your time.
Back down to the forest, onto the track and back to the car park.
