in and around Rockcliffe

 
 

Rockcliffe and the Colvend coast is a secret: undiscovered, unspoilt and undeveloped. There is hardly any traffic, no crowds and no noise. But within easy reach there are places of interest for everyone:

It is has a colourful and varied history as shown by ancient castles like Caerlaverock and Threave, Sweetheart Abbey and the Cornmill at New Abbey, and the artists colony of Kirkcudbright and modern sculptures by Henry Moore and Andy Goldsworthy. Rabbie Burns lived in Dumfries and his house there is worth a visit. Castle Douglas is a Fine Food Town with butchers, fishmongers, an award-winning chocolatier, and a phenomenal whisky specialist. The Loch Arthur Organic Farm Shop at Beeswing sells fabulous cheese and has an excellent cafe. There is an excellent real ale also called Criffel, brewed locally at the Sulwath Brewery, and named after the highest local mountain (which makes a good walk on a sunny day). Being somewhat off the beaten track, this region attracts not only those in search of clean air and wholesome food, but those who enjoy an individual lifestyle. Annual events nearby include the International Flounder Tramping Championships at Palnackie, the Wickerman Festival at Dundrennan, and the Book Festival at Wigtown.

Within walking distance of the cottage are two pubs at Kippford, and a teashop in Rockcliffe. The shop at Colvend, 1 miles away, stocks all grocery necessities and has a very good cafe, Treats and Eats. Dalbeattie, 5 miles away, has banks, doctors, chemists and other amenities. The local bus to Dumfries passes the end of the road, connecting to the main line station at Dumfries.
