Print of the Month - June 2016
June's Print of the Month features an image from my trip to Dumfries and Galloway in the Summer of 2014.
Dumfries and Galloway – one of Scotland’s best kept secrets is also known as the "Scottish Riviera" and contains a wide range of different landscapes. The coastline stretches from the tidal flats of the Solway Firth in the east, flats on a scale not found elsewhere in Scotland, to the sea cliffs of the Mull of Galloway, Scotland’s most southerly point, from where you can look across to Ireland and the Isle of Man.
Inland however is Britain's largest forest park, the 300 square miles of the Galloway Forest Park, known affectionately as the "highlands of the lowlands" and boasts tranquil valleys encompassed by heather-clad hills, rugged rock faces, burns cascading down majestic slopes and the forest, moorland and lochs rising up to the grandeur of the mountains.
Although most of my trip was spent along the coast I did manage just one day to walk around Loch Trool, a body of water lying in Glen Trool. It is the source of the Water of Trool which flows to the Water of Minnoch and the Cree. It was the location, in 1307, of the Battle of Glen Trool. Bruce's Stone stands in monument to the battle. Loch Trool is also reported to be the darkest place in the UK at night.
