Details

Rockcliffe is one of Scotland’s most beautiful coastlines, stretching along the Solway Firth on the southern edge of Dumfries and Galloway.

Part of a National Scenic Area, the National Trust for Scotland nature reserve is fringed with wildflowers and dotted with sailing villages. Further inland the shells and shingle give way to patches of ancient broadleaved woodland and meadows, rich with flowers, butterflies and birds.

The important Dark Age trading post of Mote of Mark stands on a rocky outcrop. The 6th-century ramparts are still visible, and the summit has lovely views
