Visited en route from Garelet Dod to Din Law. The unmarked summit lies about 75m W. Of ATV track. (S)gerrybowes07/06/2019
A memorable day during a New Year Borders week. A crisp, clear, cold (-5 at the start) & sunny day with Shaky & Smithy, we dropped one car at Talla Linnfoots & drove the other to the layby on A701 at the Devil's Beef Tub. Followed the usual route up to Whitehope Heights then over Whitehope Knowe & up to Hart Fell. Onwards over Hartfell Rig & then turning N to switchback over Cape Law, Din Law, Ellers Cleuch Rig, Garelet Dod, a sharp pull on to Erie Hill & then on to Lairds Cleuch Rig to finish at the trig on Garelet Hill just in time for a truly stunning sunset. The SMC guide calls the ascent of Garelet Hill from the loch to the E 'brutal but satisfying'. In descent, it's just brutal although there is a faint path on the left side to help. A magnificent walk in perfect winter weather & highly recommended!NotReallyABagger02/01/2019
13.1 mile walk from Talla Linnfoots, followed pass up east then lane, turned onto and climbed fairly steep slopes to top of Carlavin Hill, followed wall to Molls Cleuch Dod, descended and ascended Lochcraig Head up to summit then to edge to see the stunning view down on Loch Skeen, followed edge around to Mid Craig, climbed ridge then across to Great Hill, considerable descent to Games Hope Burn, then re-ascent of Cape Law after followed nice grassy ridge onto Din Law, Garelet Dod, shapely Erie Hill, Lairds Cleuch Rig and finally Garelet Hill with its very damaged trig, then descended very steeply back down to Car. Not a cloud in the sky all day, easy terrain mainly throughout, hot but with lovely breeze, saw about 10 people all day mostly from a far, this must be be a popular area of the Southern Uplands!DanTrig30/06/2018
Garelet ridge in snow. Parked at Talla Linnfoot, crossed the bridge, followed footsteps up the steep slope to Garelet Hill. Then Laird's Cleuch Rig, Erie Hill, Garelet Dod, Eller's Cleuch Rig, Din Law and Cape Law, returning by the fence, cutting into the valley of the Gamehope Burn from the col SW of Erie Hill, wading the burn, and following the track back to Talla Linnfoot. A superb, but very cold, day.Nick Down110/12/2017
Garelet Ridge. Parked at Talla Linnfoots. Horrifically steep ascent to Garelet Hill, then followed ridge to Cape Law - 7 summits including 3 Donalds and 3 Donald Tops. Dropped down to Gameshope Burn for return - followed west bank to Gameshope bothy, then had to wade the burn as none of the alleged FBs on the OS map exist - quite hair-raising after snow melt! Then followed good track back to start.Crib Goch25/03/2017
