A clear sunny day on the final day of a stay in Moffat. Left car with Martin66 near Birkhill & followed signposted walkers route through soft snow to start with & then patchier harder snow higher up to summit of Herman Law. Then fine gentle ridge walk over Trowgrain Middle, Mid Rig, Andrewhinney Hill, Bell Craig, the second Mid Rig, Nowtrig Head & finally Bodesbeck Law. By now a long way from the car, we reversed the route back as far as the col to the NE of Bell Craig & made a long slanting descent back to the road & walked the last 1.5km along the road in the gathering darkness. Easy but rewarding walk.NotReallyABagger02/12/2012
