The Taking of Graddoch Burn

By Andy Farrington

After capturing some difficult firsts to complete two hectads this year so far, the challenge just got a wee bit harder for my next completed hectad NX46 Link.

NX4964 : Graddoch Burn by Andy Farrington

There are several routes into this grid square and I decided to take in a long circular walk to get here. Starting at the car park near Cairnsmore Stables and following the path to the top of Cairnsmore of Fleet, the route back down was via a cairn on the Knee of Cairnsmore and straight across NX5064 Link to NX4964 Link. After shots of the grid the route I took then crossed Torr Burn to rejoin the southern track that runs back down to Cairnsmore Stables. The views were truly spectacular on the clear day I was here and you could literally see for miles across to Cumbria, the Isle of Man and Ireland. Well worth the effort of getting here!
