South West Scotland

Had a very nice stop-over at Loch Lomond.  Went for a lovely walk over-looking the Loch and the sun was shining!

We had intended to circumnavigate Glasgow but, because the navigator was not paying full attention, we ended up going through at least some of it!  As a result, a spontaneous decision was made and we headed west to Dumfries and Galloway.  We have never been here before and thought we should!  I won't mention the weather! 

The area is very agricultural - both crops and livestock.  Pastureland is very lush.  I've never seen so many cows!!  The area actually reminds us of Ireland.  We went to the Mull of Galloway - a peninsula on a peninsula - where there is a proper lighthouse:-

Whilst there we saw an idea for our next mode of transport when we no longer have the van:-

Thing is - I don't know where I would put all the weekly shopping from Tesco - I know I mustn't sit on it (the demise of the camera!) so either it will have to go between the legs or behind!!  Polite comments only please!!

Having problems with the computer at the moment - can't get phone connection like we used to and now, can't even get on to Live Writer.  Don't know why?

Next planned major stop-off point is The Lancaster Canal - we want to 'suss' it out with the view of taking the boat there next year.
