Decided to head out to Cauldcleuch Head yesterday as it has been on my list for awhile. Followed another users track, with ease.

The weather however didnt help, an hour of Sun at the start followed by 2 hours of torrential rain/sleet and then another hour of Sunshine!!

The route was tough with only a partial quad bike track to follow, although a fence line runs all the way to the summit of Cauldcleuch. Enjoyable to a point but very bogey and tough on the legs.
