Long Distance Records
Donalds (Ayrshire & Galloway)
This is a superb and very rough 70 mile (18,500 feet of ascent) expedition across the Carsphairn and Galloway hill ranges, peak to peak, from Blackcraig Hill to Knee of Cairnsmore (Fleet). Paced by a goodly assortment of Donald aficionados, Glyn Jones beat the 24-hour barrier in mid May 1998 with a time of 23 hours 45 mins [Ref. FR 6/98]. The route takes in 36 Donald hills; thus this is presumably the 24-hour Donald record (though not a circular route). For those wishing to indulge in a 24-hour Donald-bagging frenzy, the Moffat and Ettrick groups also offer 36 tops to go for in a much more compact group with easier terrain than the Galloway tussocks...and with the possibility of extension into the Manor Hills.
