A 60 foot whale has been found washed up on a Solway Firth beach.
The dead whale, found at Carsluith near Newton Stewart, was discovered last night (17th February), near to salmon stake nets on the estuary.
Experts from Dumfries and Galloway Council are now working to establish exactly what type of whale it is.
