Take a mornings trip from Lockerbie/Dumfries out to Galloway Forest where two people can join the driver on his journey.

During the day you will get to experience the whole process of moving timber out of this vast forest. All the trucks are fitted with their own cranes and you will see the skill required to load and move the logs over very fragile forest roads.

John Miller Limited operate over 100 trucks from their head office at Lockerbie. You will also get a visit to this site where you can see the scale of this type of operation.

If one of the party has some HGV experience then they would possibly be able to drive the empty truck in the loading area!!
