Full Of Life


Woke up feeling full of life – and the weather which was in similar mood – tempted me into an early drive along the Raiders Road – the single track route between Loch Ken in the east and Clatteringshaws Loch in the west. Setting myself up with the best of cheese scones and coffee; I set off on 9 miles of exhilarating driving through the Galloway Forest Park.


Remote and very atmospheric – it’s a little-used road – I love it and do it as often as I can -unfortunately I’m never likely, at my stage in life, to gain enough experience to ride it on my motorbike – and I’m envious of those who can. But, what the heck – I can still get there!
