Galloway Forest Park

Today Ian and myself decided to go for a drive out. I think we both needed to be away from the farm today so we headed for the snow covered hills just north of the Galloway Forest Park.

Now there wasn’t actually that much snow about, everywhere looked like it had had a sprinkling of icing sugar to be honest but it was still pretty.

The Galloway Forest Park is quite unique here in the UK as it’s home to one of the world’s few Dark Skies Parks. Read all about it here Galloway Forest Park.

On our way up there we were lucky enough to see two Red Kites circling above us. That was lovely to see. We had no real destination so just drove where we fancied but we did come across a Red Deer range so we walked up to the hide to see if we could see any. I was lucky enough to see a deer but wasn’t sure if it was a Red deer, Roe or Fallow deer. He/she was quite away away but I did get a blurry image.

Here are a couple of pictures of our trip out.
