Ae forest - Dumfries and Galloway

Yey we are back,mum has had problems with her internetty thingy and couldn't post.

We have been on some great walks since we last posted,but I don't think we have been anywhere new,so you haven't missed too much.

Today we went to Ae forest,it was great,the sun was shining,but we couldn't do the whole walk as they were  logging in the forest and part of it was blocked off.

Cluden water walk - Dumfries and Galloway

We have been on part of this walk before,but today we went further than we have ever been before.

We kept walking and walking along the side of the river,then eventually we arrived as this derelict old house,it had been a big house and mum said she was going to 'google it' when she got home.

We turned round when we got to the house,but at the house there was a car park and mum said we will come back soon and go further along the river.

Oh and Craven swam for the first time ever.!!!!

Doach wood - nr Castle Douglas - Dumfries and Galloway

Wow mum said we haven't updated our blog for a while,there are lots of reasons,the weather has been awful,mum has been working on Cravens recall,so we have been going down to the dog park most days,and we have not really been going anywhere new.
But today we went to Doach wood,we went with mums friend and one of her foster dogs called Ozzie.
The weather was not great,it rained all morning,but stopped by the time we went for our walk.

Lincluden Abbey - Dumfries - Dumfries and Galloway

Another wet miserably day,where is summer.
Anyway mum took us to Lincluden Abbey as it has railings all round and mum wanted to concentrate on Craven's recall as he has been naughty lately and only coming back when he wants to.

Castle Loch - Lochmaben - Dumfries and Galloway

Today we went back to a walk that we had only done once before,it was round Castle loch,and in the middle of the walk is an actual castle,it's in ruins though.
But the castle is in woods and away from the roads so mum let us both off the lead when we got there.
We both had a great time running around,I think Craven might have caught the scent of a deer as he started woo hooing.

3 miles.

Carlingwark loch circular - Castle Douglas - Dumfries and Galloway

We met up with mums friend again today,she has 3 dogs but only brought one with her today,Dave.
We set off next to the loch,and the path took us along side it,then it went through some fields and then we walked along the road back to where we started.
It was good,flipping hot though.
When we were nearly back we stopped off at this old disused tennis court where we could all have a run around.

3.05 miles.

Wardlaw hill fort - nr Caerlaverock - Dumfries and Galloway

Mum's a funny one,she has lived here for 10 years and walked all round this area and yet today she found a new walk that she didn't even know was there.!
It was quite good,we walked along a farm track and then we went through a gate and along an overgrown path and then over a step stile and we were in this big wood,mum let us off and we had a real good run around.
Apparently it was an old fort from years and years ago,unfortunately it was a miserable day,but on a good day you would be able to see for miles right across to Cumbria,Skiddaw is only 27 miles away as the crow flies and on a clear day you should be able to see it.

Dundeugh wood - nr St. Johns of Dalry - Dumfries & Galloway

Today we went somewhere new again,we travelled for ages although mum said it was only an hour,it was to a new wood that mum had found on her map things.
I think she regretted it when we got there as there were deer in the forest,mum thought that because the wood was on an island that there might not be any there,but there were.
It was a bit of a damp wet day,so mum didn't get many good photos.

Balcary Point - Dumfries and Galloway

Somewhere new again today,we went on a coastal walk,the coastal path was narrow and the cliffs were steep,but it was great,but then all of a sudden mum said she couldn't go any further as it was too dangerous.!
So she made us turn round and go back.!
But to make up for it we stopped off at Auchencairn on the way back and had a walk round Auchencairn bay to Red Haven,but there were cows in those fields so we didn't go any further there.

Lamb Island - Threave Castle estate - Dumfries & Galloway

Today we picked up mums friend Emma and 2 of her dogs Xiva and Dixie and went for a new walk,it was a wet morning but we still enjoyed it as the sun got out later on.
The walk was a good one as we could go off the lead,although Craven did disappear for a while.! as he managed to find a way through the fencing.
But at the end of the walk was an actual island where we could run and run through the wood that was on there.

Heathhall forest - Dumfries - Dumfries and Galloway

Another wet miserable day,so mum took us to the forest,she had us both on something she called Flexi leads,they were quite good,you can pull right to the end of them.!
But mum can also pull us in quite quickly which wasn't so good,but we were both well behaved and didn't pull too much.

Dalbeattie forest - Dumfries and Galloway

Woohoo mum took us to the forest and let us off the lead.!!

What a lovely day it was,the sun was shining and there was a lovely breeze,and we met lots and lots of dogs,mostly Labradors,but there were also Lurchers and terriers,and all of them were really friendly,so we had a bit of a play with most of them,Flint just had a little play though.

It was such a nice day that we went round the walk twice.

Kingholm Quay to Kelton

A walk from our house,we hadn't been all along this walk for ages and it was a nice day for it too,the sun was shining and it was quite warm.
Craven had to be on his longline though because they have put 2 bridges over the channels and now there is nothing to stop Craven.So until he starts behaving himself he will have to stay on his longline on this walk.

Southerness beach - Dumfries and Galloway

Oh Cravens in the dog house.! We went to the beach and he disappeared into the grass at the side and wouldn't come back.
It turns out that there are deer that come that close to the sea and they visit the golf course next to the beach and that's where Craven went.
So no pictures of Craven and he's back on a longline when we go there again.!

But I was a good boy and stayed close to mum the whole time.

6.09 miles.

Brownmoor wood - Ecclefechan - Dumfries and Galloway

Another new walk for us today,we drove down to a place called Ecclefechan and to a wood on the edge of the village.
When we got there mum could see that it was a secure wood even though it looked big,so she let us off,Flint as usual behaved himself and stayed close to mum,me I went exploring.!!
There were lots of deer smells in the wood but I couldn't find any.It was a long walk and we were out for over 3 hours.

3.53 miles
