Yesterday, we went a drive to Dumfriesshire and stopped for a nice walk and look around at Drumlanrig Estate. The weather was pretty good when we left home but it didn't stay that way! Anyway, it didn't stop us and we still had a nice time. The castle looked lovely but was closed for the season.

There was a sweet little courtyard with a few little shops.


Apparently, Drumlanrig Estate is home to the biggest Sycamore tree in Britain...

I loved this little shed in the woods. It reminded me of the witch's house in Brave.

Not a great picture because we walked to the little loch and as we got there, a mist had settled over it. It was beautiful and very atmospheric, although a little spooky...

Finally, tea and delicious cake at a cafe in nearby Thornhill (only one slice was mine!).

Once again, thank you for the lovely comments on my last post. Back soon with a few crafty posts...




  1. Ooh, I love your photos! Spooky indeed, but that kind of spooky I like, gives you a nice feeling, witchy woods and mist, is that weird of me? Nah.
    Tasty looking cake, I don't think tea that colour will put hairs on your chest though! ;)

  3. A day out exploring an old, stately home, followed by tea and cake might be the perfect Sunday.

  4. Looks a pretty good way to spend a Sunday!
    We stayed around that way a couple of years ago and loved it.

  5. It looks a lovely day out - and obviously the best days out end with cake :) My brother lives up in Dumfries and Galloway, I don't recognise the name but I'm sure the little shed and sycamore ring a bell so I suspect I went there when I was younger!
