- Caravan site on a farm on the Rhins of Galloway peninsula
- A 10-minute drive to Stranraer, 20 minutes to Portpatrick beach
- Well-equipped rural site with dark skies for stargazing
With the Rhins of Galloway as a backdrop, Low Glengyre Farm is certainly in a fab position for getting out to see splendid Scottish scenery. Set on a sprawling working farm, it has all the advantages of a rural location – peace, solitude and bracing coastal air – yet is only a 10-minute drive from Stranraer for stocking up on barbecue goodies.
This Dumfries and Galloway site welcomes nature-loving families and their dogs (please pick up after them and keep them on leads at all times around the site), and with a glen on your doorstep, deer can often be seen nearby, as well as red squirrels and owls. There are lots of walks in the area, as well as the chance to get out cycling, golfing or fishing.
Unspoilt villages, lush pastures and quiet country lanes – the Rhins of Galloway has the lot. This peaceful, relatively untouched region also has beaches aplenty (the nearest ones can be reached in around five minutes by road). It’s thanks to the lack of light pollution that the dark skies here are great for stargazing on clear nights, even without a telescope.
Amenities on site include laundry facilities, a heated shower room, toilets and hot and cold running water. There are hand-washing facilities at the waste-disposal area, as well as fully serviced pitches.

It’s probably first stop the beach for a good old run around; try Portpatrick (20 minutes’ drive), Laird’s Bay or Luce Sands (both 25 minutes). Other kid-centric fun things to do include fish feeding at Port Logan Fish Pond (30 minutes), petting cuddly llamas and Shetland ponies at Monreith Animal World (50 minutes) and raptor encounters at Bellymack Hill Farm’s Red Kite Feeding Station (one hour 20 minutes).
The local micro-climate allows tropical plants to grow, and green-fingered guests might like the chance to see sub-tropical plants at Logan Botanic Garden (35 minutes), rare trees at Glenwhan Gardens, Arboretum and Tearoom (25 minutes) or the rhododendrons at Castle Kennedy Gardens (20 minutes).
You can also catch the ferry from Cairnryan (25 minutes) to Larne in Northern Ireland, for a day of exploring over there, or stay closer to home and visit landmarks like the imposing Killantringan Lighthouse (20 minutes) and Glenluce Abbey (30 minutes).
