Day 178: Kirkbean to Sandyhills – Mirror & Gold

Kirkcudbrightshire, Scotland

Criffel from Carsethorn, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland.

Carse Sands, the first beach in Scotland, makes for joyous walking after yesterday’s road slog. I can see England across the Solway but the coastline feels very wild here already, I was expecting to head a lot further north before the landscape would feel this elemental.

Underfoot there’s an abundance and lusciousness of seaweed I haven’t seen before. Overhead the vast flocks of geese are as much a part of the landscape here as the ever-present outline of the mountain Criffel and the Solway Firth.

    From the www: “The name means Crow’s Hill, with fel or fell a name applied to many a west coast top. Like Meigle Hill of last week, Criffel is another Marilyn; a hill with a drop of at least 150m all round.”
