A week after leaving Norfolk, we’ve finally crossed the Scottish border! It’s been a fantastic way to get here though, visiting friends and family along the way.
After a lovely couple of days in Northumberland with John’s aunt, uncle and cousin (including a trip to Holy Island) we spent last night in Dumfries and Galloway, near Wigtown. One showery, blustery walk from Garlieston to the ruined castle at Cruggleston this morning and we were grateful for the van to dry off in.
Once we’d had a restorative cup of tea and a few cheese and chutney sandwiches, we were ready for the off again. We’re heading to our friends in Oban for the weekend so tonight is an intermediary stop-but what a beautiful one! We’re now parked on the shore of Loch Lomond with a wonderful view and only the ducks for company. Perfect.
