This view from Meikle Ross, looking east across the mouth of Kirkcudbright Bay with the small Ross Bay in the foreground, shows Torrs Point in the distance, and is typical of the mellow landscape and coast of Dumfries and Galloway in the south of Scotland.
A tempestuous sea and a windy winter’s day makes for cold work with the camera, but though it can be lonely going out on your own there’s always a sense of excitement to be had from driving along the coastal roads when the weather gets unfriendly.
This is a rather cloudy scene taken across the mouth of Kirkcudbright Bay with Little Ross Island with its lighthouse on the left. The island was recently put up for sale and now has new owners.
The bay in question is Whitemill Bay, more familiar to us as The Dhoon which borders Kirkcudbright Bay as it narrows into the Dee Estuary in Dumfries & Galloway.
Two views taken at Dhoon Bay where Isla, Ava and Linnea had some fun on the beach.
It’s been pretty warm here today but when I took this February shot along the bay it was gloves and scarf weather despite the lovely winter sunshine.
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.
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.
