FVMC Day Walk to Merrick, Dumfries and Galloway, 27/05/19.

Well, after a really wet forecast for Sunday 26th we changed our walk to the Monday...despite competing forecasts threatening hail, thunder and rain - but a grand day out ensued. We decided to walk along the Rig of Enoch as it was an interesting approach to Merrick, more attractive than a long tedious direct approach...in my opinion!
