Hoddom Farm/Golf Course Walk

Rob and I had a walk around Hoddom golf course, river and farm walk today. Similar walks can be found in the Walking In And Around Annan pdf booklet on page 20.

This is a view of Hoddom Castle, seen from the golf course. It was built in the 16th century. As you can see from the photos, it was a hazy, humid day.


Repentance Tower set on a hillside above the castle, was also built in the 16th century, and served as the watchtower for the castle.


Some fungi seen on the riverside and woodland section of the walk.


Someone out horse riding with their three dogs.


This is an easy walk, over fairly uneven ground, with interesting views of the River Annan and surrounding countryside. Meals and snacks are served at the Castle if you are hungry afterwards.
