The event has passed.

Help us shape the future of the 200 mile Solway Coast from Stranraer’s Loch Ryan to Gretna. Join us on a coastal walk and workshop.

Join local expert, Nic Coombey from the Solway Firth Partnership, for an easy 4km walk through Kirkcudbright down to Manxman’s Lake to hear the stories that lie behind placenames and discover why coastal habitats like merse and seagrass beds are so special.

As part of the ambitious Solway Coast and Marine Project (SCAMP) we would love to explore how we as local people and businesses, could benefit from investment in ‘natural capital’.. the unique habitats, sea and landscape along the Solway.

Future Visions Playtime

After the walk it is back indoors to the Johnston, St Mary Street, for a hot soup and a heat up; where we will talk, dream and share ideas about future options for our coast and marine environment.

What we’ll talk about:

  • What a healthy coast means to you
  • What you want for the future
  • What investment in the coast could mean for work, skills and business
  • How we might develop the coast with an eye on its long term care
  • What we risk for the next generation if we don’t act now

Please join us. Have your say. Shape the future.
