Tynron Doon

Tynron Doon overlooks the village of Tynron and eastwards towards Penpont and Thornhill. It has been describes as the "most important and impressive fortress in Dumfries and Galloway." People lived there from the first Millenium BC up to the 16th Century but most finds date from the period 5th-8th Century AD, including a beautiful gold pendant. Mr and Mrs Shug go up there every August. Superb views. Good natured sheep. Light drizzle. Can of cider or two. You know the kind of thing.

What wonderfully vivid greens! Here in the south, the humidity often zaps greenery into a paler shade.

Sounds like a nice place to visit.
