Further guides have now been developed about coastal birds, the strandline and local stories, to help walkers explore, identify, and enjoy some of the natural and cultural heritage highlights that can be seen along the developing Rhins of Galloway Coast Path.
From colonies of nesting birds on towering cliffs to overwintering waders and waterfowl on Loch Ryan, this guide will help you identify 16 common coastal birds that can be seen from the Rhins of Galloway Coast Path.
This guide will help you identify some of the weird and wonderful things washed up on the beaches along the Coast Path. The more you look the more you will find, each treasure revealing its secrets from the sea.
Stories provide meaning to landmarks, help us find our way in the world, and tell us more about a place. This guide introduces some of the stories inspired by the Rhins of Galloway people and places.
The new guides complement those already available:
The guides have been developed with our Rhins Coast Path partners, Solway Firth Partnership and AOC Archaeology. Funding from the Regionwide Coastal Benefit Fund has enabled the guides to be printed and copies of the ring-bound booklets are now available to pick up at information centres across Dumfries and Galloway.
