Dumfries - the Long Way.

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.      

The wilds of South Lanarkshire

Dalveen Pass

I'm sure I've never been here before. Durisdeer is just a few houses and a church

The church dates from 1699

Old gravestones

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.

A view of Drumlanrig Castle in the distance

I found some deserted back roads….

…..that deteriorated into gravel and potholes. Not the ideal surface for the FJ

The mouth of the River Nith

Annandale on my way home
