Solway Coast Run - Part 1

As we trudge towards winter I remember a trip I took during the summer. I'd been thinking about this for a while. Ride the length of the Solway coast. This is between the Mull of Galloway in the west to Annan in the east (Scotland) and Burgh by Sands to St Bees Head (England)

Here's the map of the route

Part#1 - Mull of Galloway to Kirkcudbright
