A nice walk from Glenkirk, over Congrie Hill on a good track then a path all the way to Culter Fell, for Marilyn No. 1200. On to Gathersnow Hill taking a direct route up from Holm Nick on sheep trods and short grass and bilberry higher up. Met Alda on the way down. Down via Coomb Hill to Holms Waterhead on a vague path, then heather and long grass to a rough ATV track through deep heather, improving lower down. Excellent cafe in Broughton, open until 18.00Gill08/07/2019

A circuit from Kingledores on a mild, misty December day. Across the foot bridge, up trods onto the broad SE ridge of Cocklie Rig Head, across the windfarm track to the summit, along the fence line over Glenlood Hill, Broomy Law, Coomb Hill, Gathersnow Hill, Hillshaw Head, Coomb Dod and Glenwhappen Dod, steeply down heather slopes to the track down the glen below the sheepfold.
