    We decided last night we would head away for the night somewhere not to far and what a lovely night and day we had.
    Spent the night at the Galloway Deer centre only us and the deer. image.jpeg

    Then a wee walk up at Clatteringshaws for this lovely view.

    Stopped for a cuppa at the otter pool Unfortunatley no Otters on show

    Although no Otters this flew along side us a couple of times, couldn't get a pic of it standing.

    All of this is in my back yard & before I retired I regularly drove an ambulance around this area. I've been having nights away & wild motorhome camping since I was 5 years old.I still adore the area.
    If you've never visited this area your missing a great wild area, too many folk carry on up the A75 & are totally unaware of the peace, solitude, easy parking & great food that are in the Galloway area.

    Beautiful photo's & a really nice thread, well done larger.
