As J and myself are Historic Scotland members we get into any of there sites for free (but pay a small monthly fee to HS for our membership).
Jaimie had hired a car which made it a lot easier for us to get about as I don't think we would have got to see half of the places if we had to use public transport!
Anyway's, we had a great time and the weather was fabby! So now I'll bore you with some pictures, if I could remember the names of the Castles and Abbey's I would tell you, but alas I cannot. To visit one of them we had to get a wee boat(!). We also had a look at an abandoned church and an old Mill House, so it's not all Castle's and Abbey's!
I have had to divide the posts into 3 so I can show all the pictures I want to! We visited Castle's, Abbey's, Old Mill House, Cream O' Galloway and The National Costume Museum (hence the divide).
(Phew! Thank god thanks over with I hear you cry!)
