I was up in Dumfries and Galloway the other day and I took some photos there but none of them were exceptional *sigh*

It was of Wigtown Harbour but the tide was out and there were no boats

Ah, yes - Wigtown: I agree, a bit bleak there! Try Portpatrick or Kirkcudbright next time, if you get a chance - usually plenty of boats & beautiful sunsets! :nod:

Thanks

Dad drove us up to the Galloway Forest Park but the car park was too packed

But at least I aw the Ken Bridge Hotel and Bladnoch Distillery as we drove around. There are good campsites there

You're welcome David. Just a wee question, if you don't mind, how did you come by your name "Coigach"? :hug:

No trouble, Myra - it's the name of my house in Scotland, in Kirkcudbrightshire to be exact. :nod:

Thanks for that. I was wondering as I actually live in the district of Coigach in the Northwest Highlands. It was just such a surprise to see the name. :hug:

Ah, yes I see - I was told it meant a hill or a measure (half acre?) of land :nod:

The people out here have several theories as to what it means as the original meaning has been lost. The native Gaelic speakers just translate it as the five "Achs" but they don't know for certain what the "Achs" are. The Gaelic word for 5 is Coig. :hug:

Ah, maybe 5 acres - or a fifth of an acre! ;)
