10th hill of 11 today and penultimate hill of a 5 hill loop from Loch Bradan car park. I did a 5 hill loop from Straiton and an out and back to Genoch Inner. I climbed Tairlaw Hill South top, Craigh Dhu and Doon of Waterhead, back onto road and past the Waterwork station then direct ascent up easy pasture. Lovely hill with good views. Back onto road to pick up a forest ride dropping down to the river. Next hill: Tairlaw hill.Dazingdale09/05/2017
