We had our first bike ride from Craig Cottage on a trip to Gatehouse of Fleet and back. The wind was blowing fairly briskly from the north-west so it was hard going on the way out there. We cycled along National Cycle Route 7 on quiet country roads past the Cream o’ Galloway dairy and ice cream factory then on good forest tracks through Cally Park past the Cally Palace hotel into Gatehouse.
The snowdrops were out in abundance in Cally Park. We stopped off at the Ship Inn for refreshments then made our way back along a different route following a track along the coast with through Sandgreen caravan park and Carrick Shore with some great views over Wigtown Bay.
