Drumlanrig Castle and Grounds

 For the last instalment of our recent trip to Dumfries and Galloway we visited Drumlanrig Castle and Estate. The castle itself 

was shut due to COVID restrictions but the extensive grounds were open to wander around.

There were lots of interesting fungi to look at, like these fly agaric (which are poisonous, so leave them well alone)

Lovely to see a rainbow

and this little summer house is a lovely place to sit and enjoy the views as well as a work of art 

the ceiling in particular 


We're currently waiting to find out which tier of the new Scottish Government Coronavirus restrictions Edinburgh will be placed under (expecting tier 3, which will remain pretty much like the current temporary restrictions).

The castle is beautiful, the grounds are lovely too.
Seeing a rainbow is always a treat. Take care, have a happy day!

Those colorful mushrooms are the kind I always think a brownie or elf should live under. (I’m sure they are immune to the poison )). Those, the rainbow, and the beautifully-kept grounds made up well for not being able to go inside the castle I should imagine. It’s just good to get to go anywhere these days.

What a lovely place by the looks of it. We have been to Ellisland Farm (with its Burns links - wonderful setting) and Moniaive, but not as far north in that patch as Drumlarig.
