The Merrick and the Galloway hills.

A mountain bike is a great way to get round the Galloway Hills in SW Scotland. The Merrick is the highest hill on the Scottish mainland south of Ben Lomond. Its summit is still iced in the last of the winter snows.

Starting from the car park at the Bruce's stone above Loch Trool, we covered 28km and 900 metres of ascent and decent.
