Kirkcudbright Bay Views Archaeology Report

As part of the Galloway Glens Kirkcudbright Bay Views Project Solway Firth Partnership invited the SCAPE Trust and the Nautical Archaeology Society to work with volunteers to survey vulnerable coastal archaeological sites on the west side of Kirkcudbright Bay.

Over a long weekend on 4th to 7th October 2019, two intertidal sites were visited and the remains of
two vessels were recorded:

• The Fauna, a 20th century trawler at Gibbhill (SCHARP ID 3951)
• The wreck of the schooner the Monreith, at Nun Mill Bay (SCHARP ID 3946)

The fieldwork was complemented by historical research and local knowledge of the history of the
boats. A number of historic photographs were located which illustrate the deterioration of the
vessels and the urgency of the threat to their condition.
