General

Located on an 80-acre equestrian farm in the Galloway Hills in south-west Scotland, Gorsebank Camping Village is a great location for families and those enjoying outdoor pursuits.

We offer civilised 'wild camping' pitches situated on a secluded, private ridge overlooking farmland and forest. You can unload your car 10-25 metres from your pitch and parking is 30-45m from the pitches to give you a sense of the wilderness.

There's loads for kids to do including a farm experience tour and a nature treasure hunt (a small charge applies) as well as hide and seek hill and an adventure path. Bike hire and coarse fishing are also available on site for a small additional charge.

The site is close to beaches, mountain bike trails, family attractions, castles and culture, excellent local food producers, and has lots of varied walks and stunning wildlife.

Gorsebank is in a great location with a real feel of the wilderness.
