Boardwalk through the reeds to Auchencairn, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland.

Four firsts in one day. Auchencairn has a public toilet that is both open and has hot water, a village shop that’s also open and, best of all, I was just called “Doll”!

Progress along the coast was slow today trying to navigate through agricultural land with many obstacles. In the end, and with great frustration I can’t process any further due to a steep gully. As it’s getting dark and the going is difficult, I camp next to the gully 10km behind schedule. To make up time I set off before dawn in the rain to detour inland.

    Hi Quintin Great to keep up with your journey. You’ve probably told people this and I’ve missed it, but in case people don’t know, if they’re viewing these reports on a mobile phone, turning it sideways makes the pictures massively better to view. I mean changing from “why did he he take that photo?” To “wow that’s nice”. Just thought it might be worth sharing again. Best wishes Paul

  2. Thank goodness you have that Garmin gadget thingy to keep you in touch with the rest of the world! As for that wind…
    The views to the Cumbrian Fells are magic. So glad to see you had some Sun.
    As for being a ‘doll’, well, I agree! (don’t let it get to your head, now…*wink wink)

    • Thanks doll! The Garmin helps put my wife’s mind at rest and it’s good to know I can summon help in adversity. that sun only lasted about half an hour – and yes a thrill to see Cumbria.
