A final view of our local lighthouse that’s located at the mouth of Kirkcudbright Bay on the small Little Ross Island. This view was taken after the sun had set to our right and the moon was traversing the southern sky.
The sun has set and the island is bathed in the afterglow as night time advances in the eastern sky. Already starting to glimmer; the lights of Kirkcudbright can be seen to the North. The time is approaching when we must return to the boat and head for home.
Little Ross Island lies at the mouth of Kirkcudbright Bay in Dumfries & Galloway.
We landed on tiny Ross Island as the sun was setting and as we made our way up to the lighthouse the Earth’s shadow was climbing in the East, which meant that we would be sailing back down the bay in the gloaming.
Our friend Sarah and the children were staying with us during the art and crafts trail in Kirkcudbright and Libby came along with me while we visited some of the studios. It was good that some places had activities especially for children and Libby had fun making peg dolls.
A second photo taken at Torrs on a beautiful summer evening. The 456 metre Cairnharrow stands on the horizon with Kirkcudbright Bay in the foreground.
The sheep enjoy a fabulous view while eating their supper!
A photo of a beautiful summer’s evening from Torrs Point is the subject of today’s post. The view is from the eastern side of Kirkcudbright Bay, looking north-west towards the distant Galloway Hills.
