- 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.
Tents are not accepted at this park.
Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.
Facilities/activities including fishing, shooting range access are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.
The restaurant is open between 01/05 and 31/12.
Reception is unmanned after 5 p.m.. Please inform the park while on your way there should you expect to arrive after this time so that the team can provide information about your unit/site.

Please follow road signs to Westlands Activity Centre.
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).
