An excellent walk, and a real contrast to those from the south, much quieter even though it was a weekend in the peak holiday season and perfect weather (apart from the coachloads at the summit, I saw less than a dozen people whilst walking up and down this route). Indeed it felt much like the Southern Uplands in character, helped by the presence of Belted Galloway and Highland cattle, buzzards and peregrines.
