34 Now we are descending the rough
track back to Birkhill and the car is still sitting there thank goodness
- it's 33 miles back from here to Dumfries where I stay and by this
time I was very glad to be doing it by car and not on foot. You can
see the line of the border between Borders
Region and Dumfries
and Galloway Region in this picture - as it follows the dyke down
past the trees on the left and starts to climb up past the pylon on
the right. The white sign that you see by the roadside welcomes you
to Dumfries and Galloway Region (as you travel from right to left
across the picture). Birkhill Cottage (in the foreground) was the
residence of a ground breaking geologist called Charles Lapworth (between
1872 and 1877) - as you can see on page 35.
