SNAPSHOTS of Lochryan's history

SNAPSHOTS of Lochryan's history have been brought to life on a series of display boards around the Loch.

The boards show works by local artist Brian Arniell showing scenes such as the 12th century castle at Innermessan, the former military port at Cairnryan and the former seaplane base at Kirkcolm.

The Lochryan Advisory Management Forum are behind the idea and the boards are located at the carpark to the north of Cairnryan, Balyett, The Breastwork in Stranraer and The Wig, Kirkcolm.

They also provide an insight into the rich and varied birdlife associated
with the loch, from the common ducks and waders which frequent the shores at Balyett, to the eider, scaup and grebes which visit the loch in nationally important numbers during the autumn and winter.

As well as replacing some of the now faded Scottish Ornithologists' Club boards found throughout West Galloway, the hope is that the new boards will provide a catalyst for further projects including footpaths and visitor centres.
