My love of the Galloway Forest started from a young age. Vivid childhood memories of visiting Murray’s Monument and Greymares Tail waterfall gave way to return visits as an adult, showing my own children the beauty of the Raiders Road, Otters Pool, the Red Deer Range and Clatteringshaws Loch.

My love of photography led me back again; dawn visits to Stroan Loch, the Lowran Burn and Clatteringshaws gave great photo opportunities, magical mornings providing me with lasting memories. The stunning Glen Trool has atmosphere and drama to match that of the highlands, an amazing place to visit any time of the year. Galloway really does have it all, I feel privileged to live in such a scenic part of Scotland.

Raiders Tales

The Potato Smugglers

The Edinburgh Road was used by smugglers moving goods that had been landed at the coast, all the way across to the capital to sell. One of the smugglers, Mc Harg, a dealer in contraband tea who regularly stopped off at the Murray’s, was in the habit of obtaining second-hand books of various sorts in the city which he gave to the young Alexander Murray.
