About the local area

In the nearby town of Kirkcudbright there are regular art exhibitions and days when the artists studios are open.  The town is vibrant with lots of activities held throughout the year from Scottish nights to historic walks, from a medieval fayre to classic car rallies. Witness the Tattoo and Jazz festival while eating freshly caught fish and chips or a local icecream.
Visit MacLellan’s Castle and the ancient Tolbooth and the High Street edged by colourful Georgian houses.
Kirkcudbright is renowned for scallops caught by the local fishermen, and the fish shop supplies all locally caught produce. There are some splendid restaurants in the area.  Cream of Galloway offers a huge choice of organic ice creams and is a great activity centre for children. There are some excellent golf courses in the area to suit all levels.
Galloway Forest Park covers 300 square miles and is home to  many wild animals including Red Squirrels, Otter, Golden Eagles, Red Deer and Red Kites. Children can mountain bike at one of the renowned 7stanes venues while the adults can enjoy a peaceful stroll on one of the woodland trails or for the more energetic, climb the Merrick, South Scotland’s highest peak.
The coastline is beautiful from Dumfries to Stranraer. There are many safe beaches for children, including Carrick Beach, an idyllic stretch of coast with several islands just off-shore. On clear days, the Isle of Man can be seen in the distance.
Galloway has just been awarded a very prestigious acclaim as being one of four places in the world to view the night sky brilliantly and so if you have never seen the Milky Way then now is the time!
