On Saturday, 4th February, 36 Wigtownshire Ramblers, met at Torrs Warren Car Park, near Dunragit, the start of an easy 8 mile linear walk to Sandhead.

Taking the forest road signposted “Ringdoo Point 2 miles”, we walked over a mile, diverted on to a path up to the boundary fence and switched to single file to follow a horse track through heather covered dunes to reach the shore. The tide was well out. The bird watchers among us spotted a little egret and were interested in flocks of finches among the cattle at Sandmill.
