Hi Norahbatty, nice to see a new 'virtual neighbour' on the forum. I have made forays into Dumfries and Galloway a few times, though sadly more often than not I am just passing through en route to England and beyond.
The closest I've got to Port William is Newtown Stewart, Kirkudbright and Rockliffe Shoreline, so I obviously need to plug the gap and head for Port William one of these days.
You are so lucky to live in such a gorgeous and unspoilt part of the country. The carnival looks fun.
PS. Am I right in saying that the TV series 'Two Thousand Acres of Sky' was filmed in the vicinity? My geographical knowledge of the area is a bit wobbly!
Nice to meet you - so to speak!
Carnival is good fun, hopefully the weather will be kind to us! Yes we are really lucky to live here, say that to OH most days.
Yes, 'Two thousand acres' was filmed at Port Logan another grand spot.
(P.S. Forgive my spelling mistake should have put Machars)
My sister was a big fan of the TV series and would love to visit the area one day, purely because 'Two Thousand Acres of Sky' made it look so wonderful. The power of TV eh :-)
