Walking, day 8
|Date||8 July 1998|
|Stretch||Polskeoch bothy - Sanquhar|
|Height range||140-455 m|
|Terrain||A nice and easy stretch. A long road to follow and only a small climb.|
After leaving the bothy very early we had a very easy walk. The dirtroad changed in a
tarmac road and we could continue this road for a long while. After reaching the Polgown
farm you will have to turn left and head into a field. You will follow a hill and will
gradualy climb to 455 metres.

After reaching this point you can look down into the next valley and you can see
Sanquhar. Do not think you are there. You will have to walk for an hour or so before you
will reach the outskirts of the town. Luckily it is all downhill. When you reach the Main
Street of Sanquhar you can follow it until you reach a gasstation. Behind this gasstation
is Castle View caravan park.
