The lovely beaches of Monreith....

Not quite such a nice day with a stiff breeze blowing and mostly overcast. Today we paid a visit to Monreith, barely a village just a few houses, but after parking up in a lay-by our first glimpse of the beach from above told us we were in the right place! 302 more words

St Ninian’s Cave to Burrows Head.....

A fabulous day and a fabulous walk – life is good. We parked up at St Ninian’s Cave car park which is about a mile up a wooded valley from the stony beach of Port Castle Bay, the location of St Ninian’s Cave. 338 more words

The Isle of Whithorn....

At the risk of sounding repetitive – another amazing day. Lots of folk going home today, but not us – no we are off to the Isle of Whithorn a few miles down the coast. 348 more words

Wigtown - Scotland‘s National Book Town....

Another stunning day. We need a few bits and bobs from the shops and the nearest is a co-op in Wigtown, so off we went. A funny place really, even though an A road passes through the centre any Sat Nav will send you around the B roads to bypass it! 277 more words

A fabulous walk to Cruggleton Castle....

Another gorgeous day – now I know it is a bit early to be asking this but…. if it could just last until say October? Today we are walking south of Garlieston, beyond Rigg Bay to Cruggleton Castle. 300 more words

A walk along the coast from Garlieston....

Poppydog appears to have recovered from her bout of sickness and we both slept soundly through the night waking to a stunning day, sunny and warm with a gentle breeze. 220 more words

A walk round to Rigg Bay....

Another fine day – not exactly heatwave material but with hazy sunshine and a lessening of the breeze, quite warm in the afternoon. We had a rather rubbish night last night as Poppydog has clearly eaten something she shouldn’t and we were in and out of the caravan until after 3am. 173 more words
