The Scottish Solway coast is a rotten place to keep a boat (the water keeps disappearing and when it does so it disappears fast) but it's good for a visit. You've done Little Ross - now you can add East Tarbert, Drummore, Port William, Isle of Whithorn, Garlieston, Wigtown (you should be able to get to the Bladnoch distillery by dinghy), Kirkcudbright, Kippford, Carsethorn, Kingholm Quay and all the others I've forgotten. Come and see us (again) some time!
