Approximately two miles away and an
easy walk down the lane, lies the village of Crossmichael with a well-stocked village
shop and pub. Alternatively, the busy market town of Castle Douglas, with its
reputation as a “food town”, is a few minutes' drive away, with many fine
independent retailers, as well as excellent coffee shops, restaurants and
On the outskirts of Castle Douglas,
you will find The National Trust of Scotland’s Threave Garden and estate and
Threave Castle. Or find time to visit the beautiful artists’ town of
Kirkcudbright, with its busy harbour and MacLellan’s Castle, as well as the
National Trust’s Broughton House, home of artist E.A. Hornel.
Scotland's fascinating culture and
history can all be explored locally including the historic Caerlaverock Castle
with its unusual triangular floor plan, Drumlanrig Castle, home of the Dukes of
Buccleuch, and more modern sites including Moat Brae in Dumfries, where J M
Barrie wrote Peter Pan.
The wonderful scenery can be savoured
with walks or drives along Loch Ken and through the Galloway Forest Park which
is a designated Dark Sky Park. Loch Ken also provides varied water sport
activities including fishing,
sailing and water skiing. Quiet lanes abound for cycling and walking with a
circular route available nearby. Unspoilt and quiet beaches can be found close
by, and younger visitors are well catered for with Cream o’Galloway at
Gatehouse of Fleet and The Cocoa Bean Factory at Twynholm or for those brave
enough, try one of Europe’s longest zip-wires at Laggan Outdoor, near Gatehouse
of Fleet. Course and sea fishing are
readily available throughout the area along the stunning Solway coast which is
a must to visit with wide open deserted beaches. In Autumn and Winter large
numbers of barnacle geese arrive at the RSPB Mersehead Reserve on the Solway
Coast giving an unrivalled chance to see these amazing birds and other winter
