Only my 2nd hill walk in after a long break and struggled so much, I felt like turning back on reaching Long Goat. After a seat and a Muller Rice felt a bit better and thought I should make the attempt to get to Cat Law. Glad I did as seemed to get a 2nd-wind.  Continued to the summit of Cat law and not a soul to be seen.

Returned by route of ascent, and as always the walk from Long Goat to the gate exiting the field felt like a very long way.
