Day Six - Walking around Moffat

Day Six was a free day, and Lisa and I took advantage of the nice weather to take a walk outside Moffat to the Moffat Well, back over the Gallows Hillto Beechgrove, and then to the Woollen Mill in the afternoon.

On the outskirts of Moffat, heading to the Moffat Well. Lisa standing in the roadway on the way up to Moffat Well. The road ahead, with the neatly built stone walls disappearing in the distance.

Moss growing on the stones of a dry stone wall. Looking up towards Gallows Hill above Moffat. A stone wall with electric protection.

A view of the terrain outside Moffat, still on the way to Moffat Well. One of the farms we walked through on our travels. Gallows Hill in the background. Sheep doing what sheep mainly do.

Lisa under a rhododendron tree at the Moffat Well. Moffat Well. This was the source of the town's mineral waters in times past. It was about 2 miles from Moffat town. Another view of the spectacular rhododendrons at the Moffat Well.

Back onto a paved road for a while as we went toward Gallows Hill from Moffat Well. A view from the slopes of Gallows Hill on the side not overlooking Moffat. A picture of ovine contentment in the Borders.

Lisa and some happy bovines. Roger in front of a vista of stone walls. In the woods up on Gallows Hill. Lisa is trying to find out what bird was making the scratching sounds we kept hearing.

In the woods on Gallows Hill. The pathway was quite close to the edge of the woods, and the valley in the distance is the Beechgrove. Looking down Beechgrove toward Moffat town which is in the distance at the left of the picture. Looking across Beechgrove again - the cloud of dust was a farmer spreading lime or some other fertiliser on his pasture.
