A 1.4km out and back from the road, parking on the verge. 10th tump of the day after Distinkhorn, Wedder and Cairnsaigh followed by a 6 tump circular from Craigshiel then parking at NS67094 15322. Straight upto the fenceline then at the 400m mark across to the summit, recording 476m @ NS 67157 14699. Returning a similar way. I then drove nearer to Craigdullyeart for the last tump of the day in diminishing light...Dazingdale25/09/2019
