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.
