Westlands Country Park: Fishing lake

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.

Please note

    Flat pitches

    Disliked: 

    Toilets and showers are a very long way away from the pitches - you have to walk around their large gun store to get to them. Very much set up for caravans rather than campervans. There were only three toilets and three showers per gender. The staff at the bar need a lot of training in terms of health and safety (only one was wearing a mask indoors, plus I was served a drink in a broken glass), product awareness (WKD is not a beer) and customer service (a couple of them had very bad attitudes). This site has potential, but it's not there yet. The most expensive site we stayed at in two weeks, but also the worst.

    Good place to break a journey from North West coast of Scotland to Wiltshire.

    Disliked: 

    2 1/2 hrs of continuous clay pigeon shooting not realising one of our dogs would think they were fireworks and got extremely distressed. I should of read the details of the place better, but want to flag it in case anyone else’s dog may have the same response to it.

    Also pitches very close together and young children running around screaming until midnight.

    Beautiful modern clean site and facilities, rural location, level full serviced pitch, food at the bar was great.

    It didn't bother me but my partner was irritated by the music playing on the bar terrace, it was quite loud although turned off at 10.
    Timer for the lights in the bathroom goes off to quickly, I had to finish my shower in the dark.

Directions

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

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 (6.2 kilometres)
  • Carlisle Castle (18.6 kilometres)
  • Robert Burns Centre (29.9 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Wordsworth House and Garden (40.7 kilometres)
