Richard Evered walked up on October 10th, 2013 [from/via/route] Loch Trool (upper car park by the Bruce Stone) [with] Ruth, Bobby, Rooney [weather] Very mixed, warm and sunny at the car park, sleet and snow, then rain. Mild and light breeze. - No other cars in car park. Didn't see any other walkers. Staying at Gatehouse of Fleet in Rose Cottage - well recommended. Also walked 'Mountain End' at Big Water of Fleet. Big storms and powercuts the day we came home. A nice Galloway break.
Doug Martin climbed on July 1st, 2013 [from/via/route] Started from Bruce's Stone - up Whiteland Burn to Benyellary working our way across to Buchan Hill and down [with] Fellwalkers [weather] Overcast at beginning but sky cleared and sun tried to get out - lovely days walk.
Matthew Crank bagged on August 28th, 2012 [from/via/route] Start at Bruce's memorial , via loch's Valley, Neldricken, Arron and Enoch and then the final climb up the redstone rig's. [with] Becky my fiancee. [weather] Pleasant until we reached the climb up Redstone Rigs where the strong wind and clouds appeared :( - Were very glad to see that white trig point ! as the walk up was through bog's and tuft grass which Becky at one point had her left leg disappear up to her thigh ! The remoteness of the ascent is incredible though - we did'nt see one other person, apart from ' the grey man of merrick ' of course ! and passing the loch's with their history , the murder hole , the 'beaches ' of loch enoch and the terrain added to the atmosphere of it all even though it was very tough going under foot. we descended via the well worn path via the Nieve of spit and Benyellary . Altogether a 9 mile and 6 hour trip. Brilliant.
