Nether Holm of Dalquhairn to Sanquhar

Rain all day, from the moment I walked out the door to the moment I stopped. Some great walking today though, the low route along the Lorg Trail was excellent, ignoring the road section to Polgown and then a splendid hill walk over Cloud Hill and a bit of a squelchy descent to fields and roads into Sanquhar.
