One of the best stops on this drive across the Scottish Borders was at the Chester's Roman fort - it was great fun walking around the remains of this ancient fort, and even more enjoyable to make images like the above!

The real focus of the day, however, was to return to Caeverlock Castle, in Dumfries. I'd actually visited the castle before, in 2008, but was not really pleased with my photographs. This time, with much better weather (more clouds), it was worth the time and effort to get a more dramatic composition of the outside of this triangular castle.
The drive south towards the Lake District put me driving through some of the most lovely rolling hills in all of the United Kingdom.
