|Estimated first ascent of quite a few. Solo on a sunny late summer's day. From Forrest Lodge, almost immediately encountered an adder sunbathing on the track. SW past Burnhead along line of McAdam's Burn to the edge of the forest, then a slog over Meikle Lump on to Meikle Millyea. Along the Rhinns Of Kells over Milldown, Millfire and on to Corserine. Along E to North Gairy Top & then steeply down towards Loch Harrow, startling a large herd of deer as I rounded a craglet. Some bolted, some remained impassive chewing away! A firebreak led to the track just S of Loch Harrow & this in turn passed Fore Bush back to Forrest Lodge. One of my favourite walks which I've done several times since.||NotReallyABagger||01/09/1987|
