Powillimount Beach Arbigland Estate

Details

Powillimount beach is located to the east of Southerness beach near Kirkbean on the Solway Coast and is part of the Arbigland Estate. It offers some spectacular views over the Solway Firth and on a clear day you can see the Lake District. It is a great beach to visit with curious kids as it is full of shells, rock pools and huge rock formations.

There is one large stone in particular that looks like it does not belong. It is a huge granite boulder and legend has is that the devil took a bite out of Criffel, the large hill that overlooks Powillimount and spat it out on the beach. The less fantastical version is that it was carried down to the beach by glaciers during the last ice age.

There is a car park right beside the beach which offers easy access.
