5/8 A round of the valley from Laghead Bridge, including Benfadyeon, Bengray, down to Loch and up to Craigtype, then Fell of Laghead, Craig of Grobdale and continue up to White Top of Culreoch. Then down through the trees to Doon of Culreoch and back to complete circle via Castramont Hill. Note the last two were hard going with felled woodland at first and then tussocky ground, made it a 6 hour round despite the low hills. Sunburnt, silly me!nickywood113/07/2019
9th and final tump of the day, 1st, a reascent of Craiglowrie with Adrian then Cairn Tammock, Rig of Burnfoot and Auchencloy solo remaining tumps with Adrian: Laughenghie Doon of Culreoch and then a 3 tump circular from the Laurieston road, starting with Ewe Hill, White Hill of Culreoch and then a descent and reascent to reach the Cairn. Great top to finish the day on. We took a grassy path that runs parallel with the grassy rake before heading direct over easy-ish grass to the track leading back to the car. Just managed to get back to Dalry for last food orders!Dazingdale17/10/2018
