Nowhere here is hurried,
Nowhere here is hurried, but the coast always had more than its share of history being made. The remains of long abandoned settlements can still be found. People raised stone circles and cairns and left behind cup and ring mark rock art to leave us searching for answers. The Romans were here, as were the Vikings and Picts. Christianity was founded here, and great abbeys became the centre for learning and pilgrimage.
There are sandy beaches you can often have to yourself. Spectacular towering cliffs, hidden bays and spectacular views to the Lake District, the Isle of Man and Ireland beyond.
