Well worth taking time out to visit if in the area. On the Solway Firth, the impressive wetlands seem to attract a vast array of different birds. Even as someone who is not normally interested in such things, it was still a very enjoyable visit.

We visited on a chilly day in May. The hides are well placed next to a variety of habitats and one was great for disabled access. Everything is well signposted and well presented and the visitor's centre interesting. Well worth a morning.

Came across this on our first foray to Bowness on Solway. Guys (volunteers) in the centre were friendly, helpful and informative. Having been away from walking for some time they explained the route and the going very well. The boardwalk over boggy bits was superb...More
