Wonderful sight, location and surrounding scenery in the Southern Uplands a few miles west of Moffat. Long standing area of natural beauty and tourist spot.

This is not far from Moffat. Well worth a visit. Get to it by car or bicycle. Car park at the bottom. Steep walk to get to the top. It took us along time but worth it. We are in our 70s.
