Clatteringshaws Loch








We enjoyed visiting Clatteringshaws Loch and the reconstructed iron age roundhouse. The photos give some idea of how changeable the weather was on our trip to Dumfries and Galloway while the last shows how much rain there has been in recent months. Alder trees may indeed like their 'feet in water' but generally they don't grow actually in the loch!

The roundhouse is a cool looking structure. At first I thought of a roundhouse for the train engines. What do I know? LOL! The scenery and loch are beautiful, a very pretty place to visit. Beautiful photos.

That iron age round house sound like a wonderful place to visit. Would that date back 5,000 years? I'm picturing the Ice Man found in the Alps some years ago.

Hi Juliet,

Looks like Clatteringshaws Loch is a lovely place to go and visit.
Sometimes you can't do much about the weather. Here we have windy weather (the Equinox winds) which cause fronts and squally winds. Driving down to the beach this afternoon, the waves were huge.

Happy weekend
Hugs
Carolyn

This looks a brilliant place, Juliet. I'm longing to get to the Crannog area on Loch Tay ... not sure when! We also had masses of rain on Skye and Mull ... and really, really, strong winds one day.
