|South Ayrshire countryside|
|The forest road to Newton Stewart|
|The estuary of the River Cree|
|In Scotland granite means Aberdeen, but it is also quarried in Creetown. This hotel is made from granite….|
|….as is the clock tower….|
|….and this spherical sculpture by the Japanese sculptor Hideo Furuta who lived in this area.|
|On the way to New Galloway|
|When I saw this I thought I was back in Creetown, but New Galloway also has a granite clock tower|
|One of the hazards of riding the back roads is gravel - none worst than this junction near Penpont|
|Nearly home - the windfarm in the Eaglesham moor.|
The CBF is about to undergo a "spring clean" - so look out for some "Tales from the Shed".
Gorgeous pictures, Stuart. You live in a beautiful rugged looking place. Thanks so much for sharing your views on the scenery.ReplyDelete
Traffic seems nonexistent in your neck of the woods... or did you wait and let everybody pass before taking the pics?
This is a very sparsely populated area with no cities or even big towns so the roads are quiet. Even in summer there aren’t many tourists. I looked at the map and chose a route using mostly minor roads.Delete
Awesome pictures. The granite clock towers and viaduct are very cool. And damn heavy I bet.ReplyDelete
