At last we reach the summit of the elusive Dunrig by bike, much easier for me on the ebike than it was for Barrie on the acoustic. It's amazing the amount of boggy terrain on the top of some of these border hills with parts of them almost like moonscape, the weather must be really fierce up here at time in the winter.
This huge bank of solar panels must provide power to a large house lower down, there also appeared to be water powered turbine in the stream that flowed down to the valley as well.
The long climb up to the mast from the valley below. almost 2 miles by the time we reached it
A selfie was called for at the trig point at the summit, it might be some time before we do this ride again but conditions today were well nigh perfect.
So we eventually found a track to link the Southern Upland Way to Gypsy Glen, whether it's the official track or one we've cobbled together using a mixture of forest fire road and sheep tracks we'll never know but at least its got the monkey off our back!!
