From the back

General

  • Within walking distance of three sandy beaches
  • Spectacular scenery on the Rockcliffe coastline
  • Laundry room, lockable bike shed, play area and barbecue area

Here’s an interesting factoid with which to flummox your friends: it wasn’t just famed seaside resorts like Brighton and Bournemouth where well-to-do Victorian types hung out for their hols. Oh no. They sallied north as well, to the gorgeous coastline of Rockcliffe in Dumfries and Galloway for its warm climate, wealth of walks and unsullied scenery. Jolly sensible of them, of course and something of which even fierce social critic Charles Dickens might have approved...

Twenty-first century sorts seeking the same high standards should sally forth to Rockcliffe’s Castle Point Caravan Site, set a short stroll from the sea and within easy ambling distance of three sandy beaches – and with some of the best views in the area. Which for Scotland is saying quite a lot...

On site, there's a laundry room with washing machines and dryers, washing-up areas, a lockable bike shed, a drying room for wet clothes, a play area for the kids and a barbecue area with seating. For provisions, a well-stocked food shop is about a mile away at Colvend and a couple of small supermarkets are around six miles away.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro) and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

For hire caravans there must be at least one person 21 or over.

A place to relax and enjoy the scenery.10/20/2020

    Castle Point Caravan Site is on the edge of the Urr Estuary/Solway Firth. The views are amazing and make the short drive along the rather uneven entrance road worthwhile.
    There are some hardstanding pitches as well as pitches on the grass. There are static caravans and a place for tents.
    The toilet block was kept clean and fresh with hot water every time I was there. The old showers are perfectly good, but 3 new ones have recently been added.
    There is electric hook up but no water supply or grey water drain at the pitch, you need to go to the toilet block for these. But that's just another opportunity to look at the fantastic view.
    The site owners we cheery and helpful. I had a leak in the roof ventilator and Scott came with a ladder and put some silicone round it to seal it again. What a nice man! Whenever we bumped into the owners they were always chatty and seemed to enjoy their work.
    There is a coast path which runs near the site and so there are plenty walks. You can walk into the village where there is a lovely little beach with a mixture of rocks and sand. We loved it and hope to be able to visit again next year.

    Clean facilities and really friendly site team. The site is well maintained with a mix of touring, static and camping. The views and walks on its doorstep are amazing. It's a really good site for star gazing as there isn't too much light pollution and if you really want to admire the sky, take a walk to the beach when it's dark to be amazed with how many shining stars you can see.

    There is plenty of attractions within a short drive from the site; Castles, Mabie Farm Park, Cream o Galloway to name a few

    Disliked: 

    Not much on site for kids, only a playing field and the we were asked if the kids could only cycle around at the playing field, which wasn't very big. I understand that they do this for their safety but with it being a small site and only one way in or out, I don't think there was many cars to cause danger. I also feel that as soon as it was dark at around 18:30, the kids had to be confined to the caravan, as they got a row for making noise and running around with headtorches at 19:30 on the first night.

Local attractions

Walking and wildlife are the order of the day here: clamber along the cliffs from Castle Point to Rockcliffe and along the Jubilee Path up the Muckle Knowe; you can also walk along the causeway at low tide from Kippford to Rough Island and its bird sanctuary or take to the hills at Screel, Bengairn and beyond.

For something even more strenuous than Scottish hillwalking, follow the signposted trail from Rockcliffe village and climb the Motte of Mark for some stunning views over the Urr estuary and beyond to the Lake District and the Isle of Man.

As for wildlife, the area is full of species to stare at, including butterflies, bluebells and summer swallows, with Dumfries and Galloway an all-round nature haven: try the Galloway Red Kite Trail, stamping around with the stags at the Galloway Forest Park, looking for small critters in the beach rockpools or seeing the seabirds from the RSPB centre at the Mull of Galloway.

If you prefer two wheels rather than two feet, Castle Point is close to the 7stanes, the seven mountain biking trails across the south of Scotland, and there are numerous cycle trails nearby.

Other active options in the area include pony trekking, fishing, sailing and tennis – Kippford is a well-known sailing centre and there are watersports, archery and other activities at Galloway Activity Centre and the Laggan Outdoor Centre. Several nine- and 18-hole golf courses within reach too, with the closest at Colvend Golf Club on the Solway Coast.
