First report
Started at grey mare's trail on way up saw some wild goat beside waterfall so it was a good start at top of trail you come upon loch skeen from there you head acros boggy ground to the wall and then follow it up to lochcraig head then head towards donald cleuch head and then down to white coomb you then cross a burn and back onto the grey mare's trail
On the hill Apart from a couple on lochcraig head was all alone when they headed off just me and ma dugs heavenly grey mare's trail was busy with tourists thankfully they were only going up to loch skeen
