A border raid yesterday. Over to the Galloways, picked up Drew at Dalbeattie and a scenic drive to Carsphairn. (Red Kites spotted on the way). Parked up at Green Well of Scotland.
Weather not improving very quickly but nothing drastic, raining all the same. Cairnsmore of Carsphairn (or Deugh) is an easy Corbett comfortably taking just over four hours up and down (strolling actually). An easy track then across some grassy slopes to the west ridge thence an ascent into the cloud to the summit cairn and Trig point. Some kind of monitoring gizmo parked at the top. A quick bearing off the top and soon out of the cloud and rain and back to the van. Drew very impressed with his ascent as he was thinking earlier he wouldn’t manage it. I used the “How do you eat an elephant” tactic.
