James Faed has captured the scene at Sandyhills on the Solway coast.  The salmon nets in the foreground in this and other works are a powerful feature in the composition of many works depicting the Solway. This part of the Solway coast has proved popular with a number of artists. James Paterson stayed at Douglas Hall near here and S J Peploe also painted at Douglas Hall and at nearby Laggan farm.
