Moorland on the Gargrie
Moorland on the Gargrie, taken 5 years ago
To the right is Culvennan Fell and in the far distance the Galloway Hills with the Merrick most prominent. The name Gargrie refers to a now vanished farm. Gargrie is from the gaelic 'garbh-cheathramh' meaning 'rough quarter-land' (a 'quarter' being an old Scots land measure).
