(Another) Run to Dumfries & Galloway - Part#3

The final part of today's run.

I came across this drinking trough. It was to commemorate the coronation of King Edward VII in 1902. I wonder how many travellers notice it today?

Another commemoration in Dalbeattie - a drinking fountain & lamp to mark the 50th year of Queen Victoria's reign.

Nearby is this impressive gatehouse.

Hestan Island in Auchencairrn Bay

There can hardly be a town or village in the country that doesn't have something connected to Queen Vic. Here's a lamp in the village of Auchencairn.

The Kelpies in Kirkcudbright. 1:10 scale models of the sculptures constructed at the east end of the Forth & Clyde canal. These guys seems to have been on a tour of Scotland (and the rest of the world) in recent years.


Kirkcudbright Bay. My photos of the sea in recent posts are missing…eh... the sea. I seem to always be there at low tide.
