The scenery here is spectacular
and there is plenty of wildlife to see! One of the stars of the show is the gold ringed dragonfly, a large, easily identified insect that isn't shy of having its photo taken
Again we saw lots of butterflies, including lots of peacocks
and painted ladies
Some very handsome sheep too
On the way back to Dumfries, we noticed a signpost down to Pool of Ness, which we thought looked interesting. What a lovely little spot it turned out to be too, though it's a steep and muddy path to get there!
