Hiking a section of the Solway Firth coastline in Dumfries and Galloway. This south Scottish coast is as dramatic and varied as the Cornwall coastline but is accessible to the public only in short sections.
We hiked from Balcary Bay, through the coastal woodlands to Balcary Point with views across the Solway Firth wind farm to the north Cumbria coast, and the relief of the Lakeland Fells. The rocks here have great names: Lots’s Wife, Door of the Heugh and Adam’s Chair. Then suddenly we see the rare sight across the sea of the full outline of the Isle of Man, from Snaefell (620 m.) to Ramsey Bay.
