In Moffat for a couple of days, day 1 started solo near the high point of the road between the Talla & Megget reservoirs near the Megget Stone. Straight up the slope NW out to Talla Cleuch Head & then following the boundary to Broad Law. Then NE until just short of Cramalt Craig & then NW following the boundary to Hunt Law. Retraced steps most of way back & turned NE then N over Dun Law & Fifescar Knowe to Dollar Law. Followed the boundary all the way back to Cramalt Craig before heading SE over Pykestone Knowe & Clockmore before dropping down the steep & heathery slope to the reservoir & then a wander back along the road. A warm, sunny day where I misjudged the amount of water I needed.NotReallyABagger31/08/2010
