From the start follow the road and then path north, following the burn up Mill Glen and bearing L uphill before the burn forks into two. Take the path west, heading up onto the rounded ridge and then bearing R to the top of Wood Burn and up the hill above at 558 metres (1.4 miles/2.2km). Follow this ridge north-west above Calf Craig to Ben Ever at 622 metres. Run around the ridge, curving R down to the col at 584 metres and then up to Ben Cleuch with its trig point at 721 metres (3.2 miles/5.1km). Trace the ridge south-east to the boundary point and junction at NN 910003 (3.7 miles/5.9km). Turn R and head south over The Law at 638 metres then downhill to the confluence of the Gannel Burn and Daiglen Burn. Cross this then bear L onto a higher path than the outbound one, which also returns you to the start.
