Belted Galloway Posted on Sunday, 27th April , 2014 by Stephen G. Hipperson Belted Galloway in the Washburn Valley between Blubberhouses and Thrusscross Reservoir. The yellow patches are gorse, which were filling the air with their scent – such a change to the all-invasive spell of the Rape Seed this time of year. —Stephen— Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailPinterestLike this:Like Loading...

You have tapir in the neighbourhood? Blubberhouses. What a wonderfully exotic name.
🙂 – not seen a Tapir since the last time I went to a zoo – no correction – I’ve watched ‘2001 – A Space Odyssey’ since then – fascinating creatures.
The ‘Blubber’ has nothing to do with whales, but is believed to be a distortion of Anglo-Saxon or something similar. (The nearest coastline is probably somewhere around 60miles away).
Truly bucolic. Grand image.
A very pretty scene.
