Cumstoun Bridge, or Lower Bridge of Tarff where it crosses the lower tidal reaches of the river. The Tarff rises to the north in Loch Mannoch and the hills of Glengap and the Laurieston Forest. I once used this view as a Christmas Card when I pasted Father Christmas carrying his sack towards Cumstoun Hall.
The area above and below the bridge is covered in reed beds which are a haven for birds. The river channel is braided as it flows down to join the Dee Estuary. Close by is the old fishing and artists’ town of Kirkcudbright which is a good place from which to explore the beautiful Dumfries and Galloway coast and hills.
