Let’s meet in Southerness and have a good chat on all things related to liberty. If you can’t come along by car, 2 bus services terminate at the bus stop close by on the only main road in & out of the village (372 service from Sandyhills or Dumfries or the 825 service from Dumfries or Dalbeattie). The Bus Stop ID is 34235768 should you want to look it up. The junction for the main road into the seaside village can be accessed from the winding A710 either from the SW (from Castle Douglas, Dalbeattie, Sandyhills, Caulkerbush, Mainsriddle, etc) or NE (Dumfries, New Abbey, Kirkbean, etc) so do take care when finding & turning left or right at the junction, even on the way out. You can buy whatever food and/or drinks suit you best at the pub.
