11 Looking back from Bell Craig we
still get good views of Loch Skene and Lochcraig Head. That is what
makes this route along the Bodesbeck Ridge so interesting - the angles
keep changing almost as though the landscape was rotating for you
so that you can examine the various faces of old friends from all
these different angles and remember big days when you visited them
- in all kinds of weather. Loch Skene must be one of the highest lochs
in Scotland at 500mts above sea level, and you still have another
300mts (or 1000ft) to climb to get from there to the top of Lochcraig
Head. Of the nine hills over 800mts in the south of Scotland three
of them are parading before us today over in these Moffat Hills -
Harfell, White Coomb and Lochcraig Head. Click here for a table
of hill heights.
