Some people crave a roll top bath in the bedroom, but we are enjoying the delight of watching the early morning light change from moment to moment with this view from the bed in the self-catering home we are renting this week.
The big window has a wide sweep over the valley of the Water of Fleet just north of Gatehouse of Fleet. The garden falls away precipitately to reveal the glorious west-facing view.
Even on a misty drizzly morning it is fascinating. Thank goodness for the horrid hard bedhead, otherwise it would be too tempting to linger!
