Scotland Holiday Oct 2020 pt 6 Galloway forest

 It is nearing the end of our holiday , so we are heading back down southwards now , stopping off at Castle Stalker but it was heavy rain so didn't stop, then the same at Kilchurn castle . When we eventually came to Inveraray castle the light was great, but was drizzling with rain so couldn't get a flight in off the beautiful stone bridge , But I did get a couple of dslr images.

We had decided to stop off for the night at a forestry carpark but when we got there it was not actually one of the designated stay the night parks ,  so we have continued to drive down past Loch Lomond and then back down to the Clatteringshaws Loch park up in the Galloway forest that we started our holiday in.   The drive was horrendous, heavy rain , Jan is just no good at navigating and we ended up driving down half flooded single track roads in the dark!  
We just about squeezed into the carpark as it was virtually full , arriving in the dark about 8 pm in heavy rain!

The next morning it was bright but windy , and after breakfast we have driven a couple miles down the Loch to the Dam and parked up to go for a walk into the forest.

Yes   very dirty pups now!

                                                          Lovely light through the trees

Back at the van the sky is looking quite nice and I will get the drone up , its quite windy so will have to be careful

                                        Love the light and dark clouds contrasting each other.

                                       They must be thinking  Where are we going next ?

We have booked into a small campsite near Lochmaben for the last couple nights  , a short walk around the Lake in the late afternoon.

                             Tomorrow , our last day we are going to visit Drumlanrig castle
