Ardwall Island

Ardwall Island is one of three Islands of Fleet Bay. The other two are Barlocco and Murray’s Isles. All three lie only a short distance offshore and can be reached on foot at low tide. This section of the coast is quite rocky and attractive and a surfaced road reaches this point. All this is a part of the Knockbrex Estate which has some interesting architectural features, not least of which is the Model Dairy at Corseyard, known locally as the ‘Coo Palace’ for its imposing size and quirky style. Unfortunately it’s rapidly falling into a poor state of repair and the Autumn gales could easily put paid to the fine roof.

This part of the coast is known as Carrick, although Carrick Bay is just a small inlet further to the north. Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland.
