General

  • Gretna country park with fly fishing and clay pigeon shooting
  • Over 100 acres with three fishing ponds: rods available on site
  • Shooting tuition, shop and café

Found a great catch or fancy a shotgun wedding? Sorted: this fab shooting and fishing site’s 10 minutes from Gretna Green.

Spread over 100 acres of grounds in the Dumfries and Galloway countryside, Westlands Country Park combines outdoor activities with fine natural surrounds: there are three fishing ponds here for starters, with some whoppers weighing in at 12lb (catch and release or keep a few to barbecue for supper). Rods are available on site and tackle shops are a 25-minute drive away in Carlisle.

You won’t find the clay pigeons as tasty as the trout but the shooting’s a lark, with the faux-birds being launched from a 140-foot tower. Novices can book a session with an instructor, but if you’ve got a shotgun licence you can hone your skills with some tuition or just head for the traps (booking essential).

The site has a café serving hot food from 9am and a small shop for basics… it’s hungry work all that shootin’ and fishin’, after all… And even if you’re not planning any nuptials, Gretna has pubs, eateries and supermarkets for stocking up.

    Location was good for an overnight stop - level pitch - nice walks

    Disliked: 

    Think it would be a noisy site in high season and post Covid - there are lots of clay pigeon shooting stands which could prove to be noisy - also with all the water around the site there is a big fly problem

  • Liked: 

    Clean, tidy and well organised site. Plenty of staff in attendance to assist, and friendly welcome. Had a small cafe and shop facility open.
    Pitches were good and well spaced apart, with easy hook up facility.
    Good site for a stopover on the way to Scotland, as it's only around 10 minute drive from Gretna Green. Has a good size fishing lake.

    Disliked: 

    Loos are quite a long walk from our camping pitch. There was a pitch right behind the loo, but it was not really suitable. Spent an afternoon fishing without seeing any sign of fish! Lots of noisy gunfire during the afternoon from the various shooting boxes. A little bit 'soulless' for a campsite, but good for a 2 night visit.

Directions

Local attractions

You don’t have to confine your fishing to the ponds: head to Port Carlisle (35 minutes) for sea fishing from the Solway estuary banks, or 55 minutes to Bassenthwaite in the Lake District.

Closer to home, Westlands is a 10-minute drive from Annandale Distillery for those who care to celebrate their fishing or shooting prowess with a single malt: tours are available every day and the distillery also has a café serving afternoon teas and regional food including haggis, plus Scottish and local craft beers and ciders… and a fine selection of whisky, of course.

It’s a 40-minute trip to Bowness-on-Solway, at the tip of the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; walk the Hadrian’s Wall Trail all 73 miles to Tyneside if you fancy it, or march a shorter section and picnic on the walls like legionaries did.

Some fine family-friendly walks start from Burgh-by-Sands (35 minutes) and Silloth (50 minutes), taking in the (alleged) resting place of Edward I, Hammer of the Scots, and the wildlife of the wetlands; various do-in-a-day bike routes start from Carlisle, Kirkbride (35 minutes) and Silloth to see the region from the saddle.

If you’re seeking more pulse-racing stuff, try flyboating nine metres over the water or jetskiing at Wetjets in Dumfries (25 minutes).

Must see

  • World Famous Old Blacksmith's Shop Centre (3.9 miles)
  • Carlisle Castle (11.6 miles)
  • Robert Burns Centre (18.6 miles)
