NW Dumfries Photography Group visit to Portling

The NorthWest Dumfries Photography Group has been working with Solway Coastwise over the last few months, finding out more about places in the region and photographing the amazing views.

Solway Coastwise is a project that is discovering coastal place names and the stories behind them, and are encouraging local people to share the inspirational Dumfries & Galloway coastline through activities, events, electronic and printed media. The Solway Coastwise Project aims to give everyone in these coastal communities the opportunity to communicate their passion for their coast, bringing the cultural heritage of this fantastic landscape alive.

Our latest trip took us to Portling with Nic Coombe, where we found out more about the area and the wildlife and plants that can be found on the beach. We also explored the many caves on this beach and found out more about the Stake Nets on the shore.

#MakingDumfries heads for Lochside and Lincluden

We have the use of the Scottish Festival of Architecture’s Travelling Pavillion all week – so we thought we’d take it on a wee tour of Dumfries. On Thursday 31st March you’ll find the pavillion in and around Lincluden and on the 1st April keep your eyes peeled in Lochside. These days are part of the Our Place project for NW Dumfries and mark the beginning of The Stove collaborating with locals in the area about future cultural activity in DG2.

If you are interested to find out more and/or be involved in the project – please get in touch at [email protected] or call 01387 252435
