The weather promised to be rainy so I decided to rein in my plans and go on this closer to home walk.
14 deg C in the car when I set off rather late at about 9:30, cloudy and a we bit muggy.
Arrived at the distillery around 10, the weather stayed dry for the whole walk. Low cloud and a stiff breeze. Quite nice to walk in.


Dumgoyne very green now. As usual provides a bit of aerobic exercise before a gentle walk to Earl’s Seat.
Lots of bog cotton bobbing across the moors. A couple of ravens in the distance and a few noisy larks at the trig point.


Needed to put on a jacket after eating lunch at the trig point but in general warm enough.

Here is the kml file on google maps. About 10 and a half k in around 3 and a half hours.
