Southerness in Dumfries & Galloway
on the Solway coast
Looking north towards the Paul Jones Hotel, the 19th Hole and the Holiday Park.
The inset of the hotel name is included to show the clarity of the photos.
The hotel in close-up.
It has a very good reputation for food and hospitality.
The Paul Jones Hotel is named after John Paul Jones, the man who founded the U.S. Navy and later served Russia as well.
He was born 3 miles north-east of here at Kirkbean.
There are those who say that he went to America and started a navy there because he wasn't the right type to get into the British Navy.
Ducks and waits for incoming...
The wider view of the area showing the main street with the golf club in the top left of the picture and the holiday and caravan park entrance.
The village offers entertainment, food outlets, decent toilets and free parking.
The old abandoned lighthouse right at the end of the main street through the village.
Looking down onto the roof.
The blue rope was clearly holding something on. Hopefully nothing important.
Always remember that images taken by 197 aerial photography are available for clients
in a very much higher quality than the small sized compressed images which are shown
as .jpg files on this website.
