General

  • Clean, safe family park five minutes' drive from Kirkcudbright

It's a small and exclusive park just outside Kirkcudbright, with rather special views over Kirkcudbright Bay to Ross Island and its lighthouse… you should surely be tempted to break out the easel.

  • Camping pod
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The Pod was ideal for a lovely short stay although the fridge was a bit noisy at night.
    It was so relaxing laying at night looking over Dhoon Bay to the lighthouse. Had the games room to ourselves as our visit was in mid September and the site was quiet.

  • Liked: 

    This is a very good site in many ways. The views over the sea are lovely and the facilities are spotlessly clean. There is plenty of space and good play areas for children. Easy access to Kirkcudbright is a plus as it is a nice place with good eating options.

    Disliked: 

    There was very little that we disliked. The pool had closed just before we arrived and it would have been nice to have that option as the weather was good. Recycling facilities could be better and better signposted.

    Unfortunately I had only booked as a one night stopover, I would have loved to stay longer.
    Beautiful scenery and very close to beach.
    Facilities were spotlessly clean.
    We arrived in late, didn’t meet the warden but He/she had left a notice stating where to park up.

    Everything about campsite geared up for families clean and tidy shower facilities spotless . Good views over estuary. Sat nav took us to wrong place so hard to turn around when pulling caravan behind you . Nothing on site for older couples,and you had to drive everywhere if you wanted to go for a drink , which wasn’t very good when just two of you. Not a site we ourselves would go back to as it didn’t suit ou needs,but otherwise ok.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Bring the family's bikes if you can, as the famed 7stanes forest trails at Dalbeattie and Kirroughtree are only 30 minutes away from and the Sustrans Route 7 passes right outside the park entrance. (If you haven't brought bikes, hire them just outside the Dalbeattie trail or near the Kirroughtree Forest visitor centre.)

By hike rather than bike, there's a wealth of walks around the coast, hills and forests of the area as well as an easy stroll to the sea, shingle cove and sandy beach of Dhoon Bay minutes from the caravan park.

Golfers have loads to pick from too including the championship Brighouse Bay course a short drive away along the coast; horse riding, a wildlife conservation park and activity centres are in the region, and the tasty chocolate factory of the Cocobean Company is only 10 minutes' drive away.

More gently, the harbour town of Kirkcudbright town has a good clutch of coffee shops and galleries in which to while away the day, as well as the Stewartry Museum with a good collection of works by local artists (there are quite a few). Also recommended is heading to the harbour to watch the fishing boats unload their catch – you might even come over all artistic yourself – and watch them, the yachts and the lifeboats leave Kirkcudbright Bay.

Finally, take a stargazing look at spectacular Galloway Forest Park, the UK's first Dark Sky Park and one of only four designated in all of Europe.

Must see

  • John Paul Jones Cottage Museum & Visitor Centre (20.5 miles)
  • Robert Burns Centre (25.2 miles)
