Galloway Forest Park
Galloway Forest Park has been officially unveiled as the first Dark Sky Park in the UK
Threave Castle is open to the public during the summer. It is about a mile west of Castle Douglas. The Castle is on an island in the middle of the River Dee. Getting to it is an exciting yet frightening experience.
At Kelton Mains farm take the path until you arrive at the shore of the River Dee. There you will find a small jetty and a Transilvanian brass bell with a rope pull. Ring this bell loudly and the angry boatman will come across from the Island. He may look a little scary with his large black cape and turned up collar, with his tightly drawn lips not quite hiding the two enormous canine teeth. Do not worry as long as you make sure you get back to the Motorhome before midnight.
I hope that you will have a pleasant night’s sleep when back at the Campsite.
