The Bogle Hole, Colvend.


Once through the narrow cleft in the rocks we entered...


...the most delightful hidden cove...


backed by a lovely sandy beach. I have previously mentioned this hidden cove in my Solway podcast with Simon Willis.

My knee injury did not allow me to hop around the rocks to take photos from above...

...but Tony took my camera and leaped round the rocks like a mountain goat and took these two cracking photos. If you ever paddle the Solway coast, make sure you don't paddle past the Bogle Hole!

  3. Ark, saludos a todos en la Argentina de Escocia. Playas en Escocia podrían ser impresionantes, pero Argentina debe tener muchas también!

    Udo thank you, the Solway was a very special place to my father. I buried his ashes at sea a few km along the cliffs from here.

  4. Beautiful little spot - I wonder what sordid tails it has to tell.

  5. Smuggling Stephen! Even some of the manses (ministers' houses) had hidden cellars. Everyone was at it, the contraband was mostly smuggled in from the Isle of Man!
