General

  • Small family-run park two miles from Whithorn and five from beaches
  • Walking, cycling, birdwatching and several golf courses in the area
  • Spacious site with plenty of room for children to play

Red kites, red deer, sandy beaches and countryside of the unspoiled variety are the flavour of Scottish county Dumfries and Galloway – and it's all very much the same at family- and dog-friendly Castlewigg Caravan Park.

This is a small but spacious site with plenty of playing room for the sprogs, two miles from the birthplace of Christianity in Scotland, Whithorn, and 16 miles from Newton Stewart. It's a popular park with peeps looking for a rural base to take in the outdoor activities of the region, with quite a few first-rate golf courses on offer in the area too. Toilets, showers, a washing-up area and a launderette are all on site.

If you've arrived on foot/by bus or want to leave the car/motorhome behind for a day, a wave-down bus service stops just outside the park for picking up and dropping off.

    Lovely clean site. We were the only ones camping. Local to many interesting places to visit. The couple in the b and b were very friendly and pointed us to some of the things to do in the area (even lent us a map) looking at going back again later in the year. Fabulous site.

    Disliked: 

    Not really a dislike but a park would be something to look at to improve.

    Nice quite sight well maintained was greeted by a lovely gentleman.

    Disliked: 

    Distance from major shops or activities,no one on site after being seen to on Friday to ask for information, my electrics blew and couldn't flick switch back on fortunately wasnt busy so was able to switch to another electric point, toilet and shower blocks dated occasionally cold and no hot water couldn't have a shower one morning. Toilet and shower blocks wasnt cleaned at all whilst on site for the 3nights not even bins had been emptied,could do with a park of some sort. Site has plenty of potential with little work. Pitches wasnt organised if was busy could image it to be a shambles.

    très peu de monde dans le camping, ce qui en fait un camping très calme
    le terrain est plat

    le bloc sanitaire est d'une propreté plus que douteuse...
    le gérant ne parle pas un mot de français, la communication est donc relativement compliquée
    les travaux très tôt le matin (vers 6-7h) c'est franchement limite !

Directions


At the Newton Stewart roundabout on the A75, if you are coming from East to West, take the first exit, heading south on the A714 for the Isle of Whithorn. After approximately 8 miles, turn right (150 yards after the sign for Castlewigg) onto the B7005 at the Wigtown bypass and arriving at the Bladnoch bridge. The Bladnoch area is also the home of the Bladnoch Distillery, the lowest working distillery in Scotland.

On crossing the bridge, you are again on the A714 and still heading now for Braehead and then into Kirkinner. As you approach Braehead, the A714 changes to the A746. Carry on through the 2 villages and up the hill and as you turn right, the road has a V in it, so keep right and carry on through Kilsture Forest and then into Sorbie. Continue on the A746 from Sorbie (you are around 3 miles away); there is another signpost 150 yards from the park.

Local attractions

So so much to do in Dumfries and the area around Castlewigg Caravan Park, from watching red kites feed at the feeding station in Laurieston to hoofing it around the restaurants of Newton Stewart.

Whithorn a couple of miles away is a place of pilgrimage for many as it was the location of Scotland's first recorded Christian church, built by St Ninian around 397AD. Visit the St Ninian's Priory and its visitor centre in Whithorn, or the St Ninian's Cave and the chapel in Isle of Whithorn, both a few miles from town.

Then to Newton Stewart, named as the gateway to the Galloway Hills, where nature types can wander the Red Deer Range in Galloway Forest Park, adjacent to the Galloway Wild Goat Park. Restaurants and a swimming pool are in town.

If you're taking the car out, some spectacular drives can be had through the hills along to Loch Ken and into Castle Douglas, stopping off at the Red Kite Feeding Station along the way.

Cycle routes

Find local routes on the National Cycle Network - over 12,000 miles of cycling routes.
