There are services at Abington M74, toilets and food. About 6 miles on the Biggar Road (A702) is Coulter. TAKE CARE. At the mill bridge the road curves sharply left but you are taking the right turn. It is against the traffic and double lined so indicate and take care. Now keep to this road going past the school and about 2 miles later is the farm and parking area.
