We had a short holiday to Scotland in 2010, staying at the Cross Keys Hotel in Galloway so as to be near Galloway Forest Park in order to catch some impressive night skies away from big city lights. We weren’t disappointed in that respect and the hotel was very good too, doing good food and having a large selection of whiskies to taste in the evening.

During the days we went exploring the Dumfries and Galloway area, driving around the park, visiting the nearby towns, and taking in some culture afforded by the historical buildings we happened upon: Cardoness Castle, Threave Castle, Caerlaverock Castle, and Dundrennan Abbey. We had no direct plans and just drove where the roads took us or where we noticed signs of interest which also led to us heading down single track roads and finding ourselves with occasionally gorgeous photo opportunities of the Galloway countryside and lakes.
