All fine. There was a no bikes sign that went on a track through a farm - we ignored it - this was just after Saltoon Wood. on Monks bicycle fence barbwired closed. just went over it. Also, there was an "intermediate bivvy spot" en route just before Glenshiel Banks - there was a no through road sign. Again, ignored it and pressed on we did feel a little naughty heading up there, but the weather was closing in, rain and quite strong wind, so we just kept on. We wanted to pitch on the protected side of the house, but couldn't we were not sure if it was in use or not, so we stayed by the wall....horrendous wind and quite heavy rain all night!

All good in the morning once over the moors.

Never thought to take a proper picture of the house - but it's on the left, anyone know about it? Seamed right out of the way.
