Due to the Icelandic volcanic eruption of Eyjafjallajökull my stay in Scotland was extended 🙂
Making the most of the extra time, my sister and I did a coastal walk along the Solway Firth south of Dalbeatie between Sandyhills to Rockcliffe ~
There is something gorgeous about walking a trail that winds along a stone walled cliff’s edge adorned with bright yellow gorse. Enjoying the anticipation of treading the trail ahead…
…whilst taking satisfied glimpses behind of hills and dales now conquered, and peering down into sandy bays.

And then doesn’t food always taste just the best out in the fresh air after an exerting morning 😀
We’d passed salmon nets out to sea in the morning ~
and ancient ruined cottages in the afternoon
decorated with dandelions!
Before climbing the final hill… around the final headland…
…before descending down to the shoreline…
…and along a shelled beach ~
to our just reward!
Great photos with jottings of your cliff-top trek Linda! Thanks so much for sharing with us just a little about your journeys whilst holidaying in the very picturesque south-west of Scotland.
Look like a beautiful walk and a fantastic holiday! I assume you are back in Oz?
Yes, I’m now back in Oz 😉
And yes, it was a gorgeous walk and a great holiday, so very happy to share it all here!
