Very easy walk. Good visibility up to about 1800' then patchy. Weather was dry except for one heavy shower near Wanlockhead on the way down. Plenty of grouse as well as wheatears, meadow pipits, ravens and a couple of buzzards. Shannon and John B kept me in good company :D The Wanlockhead inn is a nice wee pub for a pint afterwards :D
