From Martyrs to Wooliebacks

02 May

Galloway has it all.

Hidden amongst it’s hills and glens are some remarkable features —


What started off as a short-ish walk —


in decent weather —


to a Covenanter’s Memorial on the edge of a small wood —


in the hills —


turned into a cross-country marathon when we spotted some deer on the horizon and set off for a closer look.


We did get closer to the deer – but no pics – instead we found a mighty series of waterfalls hidden in a deep glen —


Getting a decent pic of the falls proved almost as difficult as photographing the skittish deer due to the dangerous cliffs and surrounding trees in the steeply-sloped wooded gorge —


No worries —


for I did get one of an almost docile Lady H earlier while the sun was shining. Just as well because in the end we were chased off the hills by a flurry of sleet and hail storms.


The storms were just blowing over as we returned to the car and spotted some interesting wooliebacks on the far side of the river allowing us to take our last photos in brilliant sunshine —

Wool 1

I will maybe get shot down in flames by our man in Oz – D10 – but I reckon these well clad babes could be Australian Merino sheep 🙂
