What is Solway Firth


Solway Firth Partnership works to support a vibrant and sustainable local economy while respecting, protecting and celebrating the distinctive character, heritage and natural features of our marine and coastal area.


We do this by working with people on both sides of the Solway Firth and further afield on a wide range of projects. We also contribute to development of policies for management of the coast and sea. We aim to engage with as many people as possible to help ensure that local views shape the future of the area.



Making the Most

of the Coast

The edge where the land meets the sky is always a dynamic place and often one of the few remaining locations we can experience wild land. The seashore is a great place to help people of all ages and backgrounds gain new experiences by getting involved.
