Our route for this ride will take us from the Upper Clyde Valley over the Lowther Hills via Wanlockhead (Scotland's highest village at around 470m) before an exhilarating descent into Upper Nithsdale. After a lunch stop in Sanquhar our return route across the Lowther Hills will follow the slightly less hilly route via Crawfordjohn a mere 266m above sea level! Total distance for this circuit will be around 66 miles.
