Suw Broad moor, Stranraer looking excellent after the winters drainage work. First year in a long long time it has been cut from one end to the other without getting a machine stuck or written off!
One more gate to replace here when it arrives from the supplier funded by the British Horse Society
When entering the forest from the West follow these temporary “Diversio - n” signs following the low route . At the first forest road junction uphill of Craigbeck you can rejoin the high route at the Dry Gutter by taking this road.
Nice to see plenty of locals on the route today up here
Forestry and Land Scotland are clearing diseased Larch just now but say their diversion only be in place for a couple of weeks
If you know the western southern upland way well you'll be able to pick out the places given disguised bothy / pub / town names! I enjoyed
Deciphering the place names as much as the story when I read it last year
Often people ask what is the Biosphere...
The Biosphere is the world in which we live, that we share with other living things, its the soil we grow things in, the air we breathe, the water we drink and bathe in. All living things are part of the Biosphere and that includes each and every one of us who lives, works and plays in it.The Galloway and Southern Ayrshire Biosphere boundary embraces diverse countryside surrounding the Galloway Hills. The rivers radiating out from the hills provide water as a common theme connecting the cultural identity and natural environment with everyone living and working in the area. With uplands bogs, lochs and tumbling upland burns cascading from the remote rolling hills, to join wide meandering rivers that flow through a mix of farmland and forest to a mixture of rugged coast and sandy beaches the Biosphere really is a place of contrasting landscapes.
Our Sense of Place film 'Tranquillity' shows some of the places to experience water in our Biosphere...and there are many more which locals and visitors alike enjoy. Which is yours? #travelsomeday
