Rough Firth at Kippford

An inlet of the Solway Firth, Dumfries and Galloway, the Rough Firth lies 3 miles (5 km) south of Dalbeattie. It receives the Urr Water and is separated from Orchardton Bay and Auchencairn Bay by a peninsula that extends from Castle Hill to Almorness Point. Rough island in the bay is a noted bird sanctuary that is owned by the National Trust for Scotland. The resort village of Rockcliffe looks out onto the bay from the east.
