A lovely area the site was central to the nearby towns.

This review is for Solway View

A lovely area the site was central to the nearby towns. Friendly and welcoming we enjoyed a peaceful few days The site is at a working farm and is set on the Galloway coast with stunning views and pleasant walks there are wigwams also on site. Each pitch has a BBQ drum and picnic table, Toilets were clean and showers were push tap with good space to change, it is dog friendly with a play area although leads are expected elsewhere around site.

This review is for Solway View

Stunning views! Our third visit to this great site , once again a very friendly welcome. Every pitch has a great view over towards the sea and beyond. The facilities are kept very clean and tidy , a difficult task considering the abundance of children and the muddy conditions , it was the Easter break ! On a clear night the sky is a spectacle to behold , the stars are amazing. Lots of great walks nearby. Our highlight though was to see two newly returned Osprey on the nest at Threave castle , apparently mating , beat that Chris Packham !

Fantastic Views A nice site, with fantastic views. Lots of walks if you are a dog owner.

Fantastic Views A nice site, with fantastic views. Lots of walks if you are a dog owner. The pitchs are spacious and hard standing. The toilet facilities are excellent, however my only gripe is - i dont think the CS should have to share the toilet block with the campers. They were always busy whenever i used them. {there is a large camping area next to the CS.}

We were warmly greeted and encouraged to ask for any help or advice we needed.

This review is for Solway View

We were warmly greeted and encouraged to ask for any help or advice we needed. This proved to be accurate as when we asked for a bucket one was provided almost immediately. The area is delightful and there are lovely walks through woodland and to little bays which are easily accessed from the site. The hard standing pitch included an area of grass which was as big again as the hard standing to ensure a sense of space around us. We were blessed with good weather which was great but we would certainly be happy to risk the Scottish climate again to visit this site.
