17 The picture above shows
where the coastal path to and from Castle Point brings you out on the
main road into Rockcliffe.
In the second picture I have gone slightly out of my way to show that
there is a tearoom just next to where the coastal path brings you out
- in case you should fancy a cup of tea and a piece of home baking at
this stage of your walk. The Garden Room does not open on Mondays and
Just beside this tearoom is an extensive car park and you could well start
from there in Rockcliffe rather than from where we started in Kippford
and still do the route shown in this web gallery. Also, most visitors
out for a casual walk will not do anything like as much walking as I have
presented you with here and the possibilities for shorter strolls over
any of the sections shown here are many.
The third picture shows the sandy beach in the centre of Rockcliffe. You
can see that there is limited parking space here - it is also limited
in the time you can park - one hour in the summer. Just where the road
swings to the left near the right edge of the picture there is a road
runs up a small hill to the right. This takes you to up past the entrance
Craig Hotel and on to the Rockcliffe end of the Jubilee Path that
we saw directions for on the Kippford information board. There are public
toilets beside the red cars in the car park and just beyond them is where
we will find the shore path back to Kippford that we are about to take.
There are plenty of waymarkers and information boards in that area to
guide you, and you are faced with the choice of going either by the shore
path or the Jubilee path from here; and offered the chance to visit Mote
of Mark in the passing.
The fourth picture gives a view across the bows of the cars in the car
park and up the road which leads to Jubilee Path and the Barony Castle
