Fishing lake

General

  • Gretna country park with fly fishing and clay pigeon shooting
  • Over 100 acres with three fishing ponds: rods available on site
  • Shooting tuition, shop and café

Found a great catch or fancy a shotgun wedding? Sorted: this fab shooting and fishing site’s 10 minutes from Gretna Green.

Over 100 acres of grounds in the Dumfries and Galloway countryside, Westlands Country Park combines outdoor activities with fine natural surrounds: there are three fishing ponds here for starters, with some whoppers weighing in at 12lbs (catch and release or keep a few to barbecue for supper). Rods are available on site and tackle shops are a 25-minute drive away in Carlisle.

You won’t find the clay pigeons as tasty as the trout but the shooting’s a lark, with the faux-birds being launched from a 140-foot tower. Novices can book a session with an instructor, but if you’ve got a shotgun licence you can hone your skills with some tuition or just head for the traps (booking essential).

The site has a café serving hot food from 9am and a small shop for basics... it’s hungry work all that shootin’ and fishin’, after all... And even if you’re not planning any nuptials, Gretna has pubs, eateries and supermarkets for stocking up.

Please note

Facilities/activities including fishing are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

  • Liked: 

    The park was well maintained, toilet block although far away were clear, tidy and lovely to use.obvious building working to improve facilities.

    Disliked: 

    No play park, constant noise from shooting range, safe path around range wasn't safe as child was hit by clay pigeon, although booked together our party wasn't close together.

From the manager...

We are sorry you could only rate us 6/10 on this occasion. We would just like to address the points that you have raised. We advertise across all platforms that our touring area and lodge park is located beside our clay pigeon shooting ground - working hand in hand to create a fun filled holiday for all ages.

Our shooting ground is only to be used by those participating in the sport and we advice all participants and members of their party to wear eye and ear protection at all times. There are signs in place around the whole shooting ground warning users of falling clays.

We hope that you decide to visit again in the future. We would advise to call either Pitchup or ourselves direct to make sure you are allocated a pitch together.

Best wishes, Westlands Country Park

Local attractions

You don’t have to confine your fishing to the ponds: head to Port Carlisle (35 minutes) for sea fishing from the Solway estuary banks, or 55 minutes to Bassenthwaite in the Lake District.

Closer to home, Westlands is a 10-minute drive from Annandale Distillery for those who care to celebrate their fishing or shooting prowess with a single malt: tours are available every day and the distillery also has a café serving afternoon teas; regional food including haggis; Scottish and local craft beers and ciders... and a fine selection of whisky.

It’s a 40-minute trip to Bowness-on-Solway, at the tip of the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; walk the Hadrian’s Wall Trail all 73 miles to Tyneside if you fancy it, or march a shorter section and picnic on the walls like legionaries did.

Some fine family-friendly walks start from Burgh-by-Sands (35 minutes) and Silloth (50 minutes), taking in the (alleged) resting place of Edward I, Hammer of the Scots, and the wildlife of the wetlands; various do-in-a-day bike routes start from Carlisle, Kirkbride (35 minutes) and Silloth to see the region from the saddle.

If you’re seeking more pulse-racing stuff, try flyboating nine metres over the water or jetskiing at Wetjets in Dumfries (25 minutes).

Must see

  • World Famous Old Blacksmith's Shop Centre (3.9 miles)
  • Carlisle Castle (11.6 miles)
  • Robert Burns Centre (18.6 miles)

National Trust

  • Wordsworth House and Garden (25.3 miles)
