Kirkandrews Kirk

Kirkandrews is a tiny wee place but worth a visit if you are ever in the Galloway area of SW Scotland.

We first visited this place with the kids about 10 or 15 years ago. I am still impressed with my girls’ stamina and enjoyment of what was a fair length of walk for young children. We had an unexpected surprise in the graveyard a few yards down the road from the kirk but you will have to wait until tomorrow for that.

Out of Use but Not Abandoned

My walk along the Borgue road on the Galloway coast in Scotland revealed a number of places for sale. However, although the gates in the first image are no longer in use, from what I could see, the estate behind them is. I wonder if this entrance will ever be used again.

The building in the second image is not the same place and is just waiting for someone to take an interest greater than photography.

Old and Rusty

This old rusty gate and shed are just two of the ageing things I found by the wayside on one of my walks through the Galloway countryside in Scotland.

Beauty in Age

Maybe it’s just me but I find these dying daffodils still hold their beauty. It is just different to when they were young.

At The End of the Day

One of things I enjoy most about the longer days of the year is evening walks.

I love walking at all times and in many different conditions but when the sun puts on a display like this . . .

You can watch the StillWalks sample video “Coastal Walk – Evening” here.

Glorious Light

The source of yesterday’s pool of light on water – the sun, the clouds, the weather never ceases to amaze me!
