From Saturday - more from Loch Doon .....

The ruins of Loch Doon castle stand beside the Loch .... but the castle used to stand on a small island in the middle of the loch - it was moved to save it from rising waters when the Loch was dammed in the 1930's.

Another interesting fact about Loch Doon is the story of the search for a WW2 Spitfire that crashed into the Loch. In the 1976 a local sub aqua club started to search the loch bed for the plane. They found it ......... after six years of searching! The plane was reclaimed from the loch, info here :-

It's really beautifull!!!

You are right ....although cold, the weather at the weekend was good for November .... normally we would have finished our rideouts at the end of October.

It was beautiful and quiet ...... I'm not sure it would have been enhanced any by the howl of 4cylinders! Lol! ...smetimes silence is the best soundtrack to life.

Speaking of the 'howl of 4 cylinders' - the cross plane crank R1 sounds awesome ....but sounds like a twin... not a four - weird!
