Set off on sunny, dry day for the greys mare trail in Dumfries. Started walking about 10.45am in the morning and followed a pre planned route obtained on this website using my GPS and OS MAap.
Excellent walk through some fine scenary, as I had set off early there where very few cars in the carpark and I hardly saw a soul all day apart from near the end of the route at the waterfall, whereby loads of people where coming up to have a look.
The route was easy to follow and well worn in places, although a bit boggy as described. Recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good days hill walking.

Warning Please note that hillwalking when there is snow lying requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly. Summer routes may not be viable or appropriate in winter. See winter information on our skills and safety pages for more information.
