Enterkin from Dalveen
A Lowthers stravaig
The A702 road far below passes through the Dalveen Pass on its way to Crawford and the M74 motorway. Part of the Clyde Wind Farm sits in front of the snow-topped Moffat Hills. The hill in the sunshine on the left of photo is Wether Hill on which a section of the Southern Upland way continues to Lowther Hill.
Our target hill in the sunshine. We'll take the rib of ridge known as Crawstone Snout casting the shadow, up to East Mount Lowther's summit before descending the rough track from the col back to the Enterkin Pass.
Looking south on the way out, enjoying the last of a winter day's sunshine. These power cables run from the A702 road, presumably to serve Wanlockhead and the radio installations on the major Lowther summits.
