Firth of Flowers

Firth of Flowers

Check out the April issue of BBC Countryfile magazine for my Firth of Flowers piece in their Great Days Out section.

The Rough Firth Estuary is a beautiful part of the Scottish coastline, and this feature combines two walks that can be tackled individually over a leisurely morning or afternoon, or walked as one. I’d recommend tackling them as two walks, at different times of the day. I spent a week holidaying in Dumfries and Galloway, staying in a cottage just a short walk from Rockliffe and Kippford, which means that I did both of these walks a couple of times during my stay. Climbing to the summit of Muckle on a sunny afternoon offers a completely different experience to climbing it in the evening (which can be a great time for birdwatching).

Here’s a video I took from the summit of Muckle, which offers a hint of the vista and experience.

 

I stayed here, at St Mary’s Cottage, Colvend. Ideal for one or two people.
