Rockcliffe

Rockcliffe, a picturesque seaside resort since Victorian times, is situated around a small sandy bay and is perhaps one of the prettiest coastal locations in SW Scotland.

The crescent shore is punctuated by craggy rocks and rock pools making it a magnet for rock pooling. The village overlooks Rough Island, a bird sanctuary owned by the Scottish National Trustthat can be reached via a causeway at low tide (except May and June to protect nesting birds.). There are also beautiful views of Hestan Island further offshore.

Walk from here to Sandyhills along the coastal path, said to be one of the finest cliff walks in Britain, with stunning views across the Solway to Cumbria and the Isle of Man. Spot nesting seabirds such as fulmar, razorbills and cormorant in spring and summer. For spectacular views of the Solway climb the Mote of Mark, a Dark Age settlement with links to the legend of King Arthur ; or walk to Castle Point at its commanding position at the head of Rough Firth.

Rockcliffe also has a curios/antiques shop which serves takeaway coffees that can be enjoyed in the garden and an ice cream van visits on sunny days.
