Alan, Gavin, TorilNHWC07/09/2019
Solo. 32 mile circular. Starting from Prosen Kirk I took the Ministers Path to Glen Clova and then walking up the glen before climbing over the mountains back to Glen Prosen via the highest point which is Driesh summit (947m) and Mayar (928m).meltdiceburg15/08/2019
Walked solo. From Glen Doll car park via Jock's Road and path through Corrie Fee and besides waterfall. Corrie Fee is truly spectacular and the highlight of the walk! From the rim of Corrie Fee to Mayar and along the ridge following a broken fence most of the way to Driesh. Return to Shank of Drumfollow and descend back to start along Kilbo path ... a bit messy lower down due to forest felling. Weather cloudy and dry for most of ascent. Rain, wind and mist (sadly) from Mayar summit onwards. Time 5 hours. Parking in Glendoll is £2.jamessteel10011/08/2019
