Welcome to Solway Shore Stories, where I hope you will enjoy discovering more about the Solway Firth, the extraordinary stretch of water that both divides and unites the South-West corner of Scotland and the North-West corner of England.

Its scenery and seascape are unique and beautiful, and the sea and its shores have been and still are 'worked' and enjoyed in many different ways — from fishing and undersea mining, to wild-fowling and peat-cutting, to wind-surfing and 'wind-farms'. On this website you can read about places and people, browse the many photographs — or check out shore-walks, past and future.

Short topical 'posts' about the Firth can be found on my Solway Shore-Walker blog, and many more images on my Pinterest Board..
