I started from Priesthaugh farm and took the track to Priesthaugh-hill and followed the tree line and fenceline to the summit of Cauldcluech Head. There was no cairn here, just a fence post and half an old signpost. From here i again followed the fenceline and treeline to Greatmoor Hill. The fenceline is a good aid in bad weather, though visibility was good today, as long as you follow the right fence. From Greatmoor summit i retraced my steps back to Swire Knowe and took the second break in the forest which lead me to a track. Unfortunately the track ended and had to head down rough ground following a burn which brought me out at the house at Priesthaugh-hill. I was then on the track back to the start, with only some cows to negotiate before arriving back at the car.
