Activities

 
 

Dumfries & Galloway is an excellent region for walkers and cyclists with mountains, lochs, forests and coastline.  Information on walking and cycling routes can be found on the Visit Dumfries and Galloway website on the Links page. The Southern Upland Way, the Galloway Hills and the Glenkens are all within easy reach for enthusiastic walkers, while keen cyclists will enjoy the 7Stanes world class mountain bike trails nearby, as well as the joy of cycling in safety on empty roads and lanes. 

For golfers there are four excellent golf courses within only a few miles, notably the outstanding Southerness Golf Club, and also at Dalbeattie, Colvend and the Solway Links.  The boats in the estuary at Kippford belong to the Solway Yacht Club which holds its regattas in July and August.  There is an excellent riding centre at Barend (no website) Tel 07746 095248.  They have ponies and horses and do trekking and riding lessons as well.

For children, this is an ideal holiday spot because the air is clean, the spaces wide and the choice of activities huge.  The sands of the estuary near Rockcliffe when the tide is out are safe and vast.  You can walk out to Rough Island, tides permitting, and round to Kippford, with just seagulls for company.  The Laggan Outdoor Activity Centre near Gatehouse of Fleet, is highly recommended by our visitors. It boasts one of th elongest double zip wires in Europe. Also nearby are fantastic activity centres like the Mabie Farm Park and the famous Cream O’Galloway ice cream factory near Castle Douglas, which has a large indoor activity centre for a rainy day.
