General

  • Well-kept family-run park with views of Wigtown Bay
  • In a stargazing and birdwatching haven five miles from Wigtown
  • Immaculate and heated shower block with family room and free hot water

Wherever you pitch up at Drumroamin Farm Camping and Caravan Site in Dumfries and Galloway, be sure to leave some space for lying back and stargazing. This part of Scotland has some of the darkest skies in Europe (part of Dumfries and Galloway was made Britain's first Dark Sky Park), so is just the spot for galactic activities. And the phone connectivity is pitch perfect, so you can look up what you're looking up at and have the kids starstruck at your cosmic range of knowledge.

By day, the area around Drumroamin Farm is birdwatching – and fishing – land too and the site itself has pretty stellar views over Wigtown Bay and the surrounding hillsides from its open, level and well-drained camping field. It's about five miles from bookish Wigtown for a ramble around the secondhand bookshops: you could look for a book on astronomy…

And as for the camping? Facilities on the farm are immaculately maintained by the very friendly team and include a modern, roomy and heated shower and loo block with separate family/disabled room, and a dishwashing area with two coin-operated washing machines and a coin-operated dryer; as with the showers, the hot water for washing up is free.

Other considerate touches are evident all over at this friendly and popular park, like the indoor playroom and sitting area with TV, DVD player and books for more misty days, the freezer for guests' use (remember to label icepacks with your name) and the secure lock-up storage for bikes and boats (subject to availability). A large play area is adjacent to the site for the kids.

Please note

Facilities/activities including washing machines and tumble dryers are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.

We would recommend this site with clean facilities & level pitches 05/06/2017

    Friendly welcome by the owner onto this lovely quiet, very well maintained site. Shower block containing toilets,wash basins and shower cubicles with free hot water is kept spotlessly clean and a separate laundry area (coin operated) provides washing facilities.
    Small games room with TV pool table and selection of books to borrow also provides a range of tourist information with suggestions of local attractions.
    Individual electric hook up provided for each pitch and drinking water supplies at various points around the site.
    Centrally located grey water and chemical toilet disposal point.
    Site is level grass area, very well maintained, surrounded by open farmland, with lovely views of the bay and surrounding hills.
    Small children's play area with swings etc. and a meadow for dog walking, with an additional nearby wooded area.
    This is a very pleasant, relaxing site ideal for visiting the surrounding area of Galloway and particularly good if you are interested in star-gazing, as nearby light pollution is virtually non-existant.

  • Liked: 

    Good sized, level pitches.
    Very clean showers and toilets.
    Excellent washing up facilities and good laundry facilities for a small charge.
    Brilliant wifi and free to use but make a donation to local charity.
    Friendly owners.
    Visiting fish and butcher van.
    Games room.

    Disliked: 

    Tiny criticism is that I found the shower block quite cold but once in the shower quickly warmed up.
    Quite remote and nearest villages did not have many amenities. You need to drive for pubs, restaurants and shops. This did not put us off but it might not suit everybody.

From the manager...

Thank you for your kind and fare comments. We do advertise our site as a rural location which warns customers in advance that they do need to bring some supplies with them.We do have heating in our shower block but we feel that in May we should not need it on but unfortunately last week was a little chilly at night. Sorry about that. Regards Lesley Shell.

    What a fantastic little site with stunning views, ideal layout with spotlessly clean toilet block, useful room with pool table, sandpit area, play park and under cover BBQ area. Owners could not do enough for you and we would recommend the site to everyone we know. Well worth the 7.5 hour drive!!!

Forest track or quiet road cycling, birdwatching and standing stones are all around Drumroamin Farm Camping and Caravan Site, and there's loads of fishing available too in the local rivers, sea or forest park lochs. For a spot of history, wander round Whithorn Priory or St Ninian's Cave and chapel.

Take the pleasant walk from the campsite to the saltmarsh, mudflats and hills of the RSPB reserve Crook of Baldon if you're here for birdwatching, where species to spot include pink-footed geese, golden plovers and Icelandic whooper swans in summer.
