Meikle Port of Spittal Moss
Meikle Port of Spittal Moss
There are a two farms on the outer edges of this grid square, Port o' Spittal and Kirklauchline, however as the name of the area suggests much of the grid is moss land with a couple of fields given over to crops and grazing for sheep and cattle. There are also several farm tracks marked on OS and this is one of them. The view here is about SW towards Dunanrea Bay and the North Channel. It's quite a tricky area to get across with burns and double live electric fencing to negotiate. So much so that I abandoned my original planned route and took a straight line out of the area to Coleman Cottage on the track to Kirklauchline Farm.
