Last night we stayed in a motorway service station hotel, decent price, rubbish food - but you would expect that, it served a purpose though, and a lovely surprise also. The manager, wonderful June, shifted our bags to Moffatt from Abington Services, for free! Thank you very much June, you are a diamond!
though, I did manage a couple of good shots as we found quietish places to stop for periodic tea breaks. The Southern Uplands really are quite beautiful, and The Southern Upland Way is now very near the top of my list of walks I must do!!
We finally left the company of the A74M and headed towards quiet woodland, then on towards Moffat.
Another to add to my list of very good Scottish pub/hotels I have visited on this big old plod,
well run by very friendly Nicky Long!
Tomorrow, off to Lockerbie. Mileage today, an easy stroll of 18.5 miles.
