A favourite run of mine today down to Dumfries. The main road, the A76, is good - fast with lots of bends. But today I took the minor road on the west side of the River Nith. This suits the CBF's pace better and, being a cool morning, reduced the wind chill effect.

I like a yarn, but I'm not buying this one. No way did a horse gouge solid sandstone. If I had to guess, these marks were made by a steel cable being used to remove a fallen tree from the bridge pier.

Perfect - a nice quiet back road

The bridge has unusual refuges built into the parapets
Looks like a nice watering hole. And old - built in the 1500's.
