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.
