Old Photograph Steam Train Approaching Rockcliffe Scotland
Old photograph of a steam train approaching Rockcliffe, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland.
Tour Scotland video of old photographs of Rockcliffe, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland. Rockcliffe lies at the mouth of the Urr Water on the eastern shore of the Rough Firth, 6 miles south of Dalbeattie. The Mote of Mark, a hill fort of the 5th Century AD, is located to the north west on Mark Hill, the name Mark being associated with the King of ancient Dumnonia who was the husband of Isolde in the story of Tristan and Isolde. The Jubilee Path along with the Muckle Lands form an extensive area of coast between Rockcliffe and Kippford. Rockcliffe is also linked to Castle Point, site of a Roman fort, Glenstocken, Portling and Sandyhills by walking footpath. Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day.
