PATH IN TILLICOULTRY GLEN NOW OPEN. Considerable work to repair it is evident. I could appreciate the glen's beauty and destructive power. Access fine to The Law, a great route up to Ben Cleuch. I continued my walk over Andrew Ginnel Hill- which I thought the best summit, rocks above a steep drop. Then over to Kings Seat Hill before dropping down the obvious path on the broad ridge W of Elistoun Hill, appreciating the deep cut valleys again on my way down to Tillicoultry. Rapidly melting spring snow.pwheeler24/03/2017
