20 Above is a shot from The Muckle down onto Jubilee Path and the pleasant open woodland which lies between Rockcliffe and Kippford through which the shore and Jubilee paths run.
The second shot shows the view out into Rough Firth. You can see the causeway out to Rough Island on the left half of the picture. This picture was taken at 2.02 pm and you can see that it would still be possible to get back from Rough Island - though not adviseable to go there. Low tide was around 11 am. Horse Isles Bay is on the right of the picture with Hestan Island visible beyond the end of Almorness Point.
The third picture shows the view up the valley of the meandering Urr Water. You can see Palnackie and then Dalbeattie further into the picture. You can also see the jetty down at Kippford marina in the left foreground.
