Please see the governments latest advice on access to green spaces.

When visiting the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty at this time please:

  • Respect local communities and their concerns, please be aware you may need to be prepared to make the necessary decision to turn around if the area or car park looks busy, or is full, and come another time.
  • Follow the Countryside Code and always – leave no trace of your visit and put litter in the bin or take it home, keep dog’s under effective control and pick up after them.

Its area covers approximately 118 Sq KM. The staff and management of the Solway Coast AONB are totally committed to the area, working in partnership with the Joint Advisory Committee in order to continue the excellent work already completed to protect and enhance the area.
