St Andrews Day and that meant free entry to several Historic Scotland properties, which we booked online beforehand. A great opportunity to go to places we hadn’t been to in Dumfries and Galloway and to revisit one we had visited many years ago.
A beautiful sunny morning, although we knew it wasn’t going to last, we headed first for Sweetheart Abbey, New Abbey, somewhere we had yet to visit.
We next moved on to New Abbey Corn Mill, another place we had yet to visit. It is just a short walk from the abbey,so we left our car in the car park there.
Before leaving New Abbey, we popped in to Abbey Cottage a delightful gift shop and tearoom, and well worth a visit!
Our next stop was Caerlaverock Castle, which we had visited many years ago. Unfortunately by now the weather, as predicted wasn’t so good!
Thank you Historic Scotland, an excellent day out!
