The Merrick – Mullwarchar – Dungeon Hill – Craignaw
The weekend forecast after our hill holidays looked pretty grim right across Scotland, but Ally and I were desperate to get out again after such a good week. The only window of opportunity was southern Scotland which had a pretty decent forecast – the rest of the country was torrential rain, weather warnings and high winds. However, this presented an opportunity to go to Galloway. We had never been to any of the Galloway hills before and in fact we had only been to this area once before, to the excellent Wigtown book festival.
