Coastguard Cottages, Ross
Ross is a tiny hamlet in North Durham on the coast of northern Northumberland. It stands on a dead-end lane to the east of Elwick, on a low, flat peninsula between Buddle Bay and the gulf of sea and mudfalts which divides Lindisfarne from the county's mainland. A footpath leads out from the hamlet to the marshland of the Ross Links and the Ross Back Sands, a deep sandy beach on the coast of the open North Sea.
The north end of the Ross Back Sands form a finger of sand separated at high tide and reaching out toward the farther end of Lindisfarne, facing its harbour, almost to enclose the sheltered water behind.
