Travel Theme: Pink. Our return from Dumfries & Galloway last Friday included a detour to Glenkiln – it promised so much: Glenkiln, Shawhead in Dumfries and Galloway is the site of the 6 Glenkiln Sculptures by Henry Moore, Sir Jacob Epstein and Auguste Rodin situated in the beautiful glen, placed there by local landowner Sir William Keswick. I was going to surprise the good lady. Rodin’s John the Baptist is positioned just above the small car park at the head of the Loch – “look isn’t that amazing and there’s mo(o)re”. Except it wasn’t and there isn’t. After the event I found Tammy Tour Guide’s informative post which explains all and bears a striking resemblance to our own experience – “Sadly, we were too lazy to scramble up the hill and check it (the Glenkiln Cross) out for ourselves” – likewise.
What did I salvage from the day? All the estate buildings are pink 😛
