Carronbridge and Thornhill Trip

Rob, Brock and I went for a walk at Carronbridge yesterday. The walk can be found on pages 12 and 13 of the free booklet, "Walking in and around Thornhill".

The walk is very easy, about 2 miles long, passing along a track past farmland, and along by the River Nith before looping back to the main road through the village of Carronbridge. There are distant views of the impressive Drumlanrig Castle before you reach the river, but I didn't get a photo.

After the walk we went to Thornhill where we had hoped to have lunch at Thomas Tosh. Unfortunately, they did not allow dogs, and it was too hot to leave Brock in the car, so we settled for a cup of coffee sitting outside The Happy Potter Ceramic Cafe. It was a very nice coffee and came with a homemade biscuit. Rob also had a traybake, which he enjoyed. Sadly, there were no gluten free options for me :(

Rob's Sister, Mum and Niece enjoyed decorating plates and mugs in the cafe on a couple of holidays that they had in the area.
