High Tide

High Tide


One of the classic views of the cottages by the harbour in Kirkcudbright (that’s Ker-coo-bree) but seen here when the tide was full after south westerly gales had pushed the water into the Irish Sea and Solway Firth. The Argo is birthed in the small dock next to the slipway at the foot of the Moat Brae on the left. Through the two trees you can just make out the end wall of what remains of the sixteenth century MacLellan’s Castle.

Behind the lamppost is the end of a row of cottages which in part houses the Harbour Cottage Gallery and beyond these is the old High Street. The town lies on the River Dee.
