The town of Dumfries in southern Scotland is a favourite destination for me. It's a fairly short run - 70 miles by the quickest route but there are lots of options for a more meandering run and that's what I did today.

|I'm sure I've never been here before. Durisdeer is just a few houses and a church |
|The church dates from 1699|
Nearby was this ford. It looked a bit deep and slippery so I chickened out and rode over the footbridge. It had a timber plank deck but luckily it carried myself and the FJ.

|I found some deserted back roads….|
