Rained most if the way round - tbh I was expecting it. No views today. I'll take the heron and 3 buzzards I saw today though
Didn't even notice black law. Wee steep descent and ascent up to white law.
Just one thing. If it is wet walk aong the road and go over the bridge, then through the gate/ over the fence

Just after the 1st large sheepfold there's a marker post and an old info sign.

A few stones just through the gate in the fenceline marks the summit

Folliewd the fenceline for a bit tge headed foen. Eventually it cleared and showed the route back. I crossed the stream just before that sheefold in the centre of the pic (skirted left of the sheepfold), and picked up a "path" heading back
