Changing scenes on the Solway.

There are two excellent caves to explore on this section of the Solway. We turned back after reaching this, the second one, which is called Dove Cave. It can only be entered at spring high water.

 The two caves lie on either side of this headland.

 The smaller cave, to the west of the headland, can be entered at most states of the tide.

After a short break ashore, we paddled...

...through the skerries of the Kirkandrews shore, which were flooded by the spring high water. One of the great pleasures of the Solway is the dramatic changes in scenery within a very  short distance.
