This is a captivating coastal walk along the shore of the Solway with its history of smuggling, shipwrecks, murder and mystery.
The route starts on the banks of the River Dee at the picnic site at Gull Craig and leads to a woodland walk through Senwick Wood passing places with evocative names; Frenchman’s Rock, Shaw Hole and Gallant Buoys.
It then goes round sandy Ross Bay and follows the Ross peninsula with a prime view of Ross Island, the scene of a brutal murder in 1960, continuing past the Mull of Ross to the finish at Brighouse Bay.
