Having studied Aqueously90s log on TP:UK, I decided to take a route from Bridge of Brown past Mains of Glenlochy and Tomlay to the ruin and then to try and find the track that took the boundary line and the Allt Mor or March Burn to the trigpoint. My heart sank when I got out of the car at the phone box and the GPSr said 3.6km, Charlie has not been well lately and I thought we may be undertaking too big a journey! All ok to ruin, then the going got a little rougher and ended up in quite high heather and it was very hot, Charlie was really struggling. After the gate we went down to the burn for a cool off and headed up to find the path at the boundary line. Nae path and at this point Charlie did his very odd howling and barking which we think is 'I'm not doing this anymore'. We still had about 1.2km to go but we'd come so far. So after a quick phone call to Mr TJR, more on TP:UKthejackrustles08/07/2017
