Solway Walk

Tom and I walked from Eastriggs to Annan along the Solway shoreline today which was a distance of about 6 miles. It was a bit difficult in places but nevertheless an excellent walk in fairly good weather. The last mile of the walk follows the old Solway viaduct Railway line and there is a new proposal to build a Barrage Scheme to harnass the tilda power of the strong and fast Solway tides. It may happen, but not for a long time yet.

The photograph is the view over the solway showing the snow covered mountains of the Lake District.

Ranger Led Walk

Today was the first of the Ranger Led Walk's for the season organised by Langholm Walks Group. Unfortunately the weather was awful with snow for at least 2 of the 3 hours we were walking. I had better weather in early February when we were walking in Wales. We had a reasonable turnout however with walkers from all over Dumfries & Galloway and one visitor from the south of England who had been staying at Border House. Despite the weather the company was excellent and all eleven walkers enjoyed the walk.
