Famed for its rugged coastline, lovely beaches, forests and wild moorland as much as for its ancient castles and charming little towns, this corner of South West Scotland provides a delightful backdrop to our holiday parks in Kirkcudbrightshire.
The inviting coastal village of Creetown is perhaps best known for its country music festival and as the setting for the cult film, The Wicker Man (there’s a 12 ft high model of him among many other fascinating exhibits in the Creetown Heritage Museum). And there’s a magical thrill in visiting a castle you can only by reach by boat. Threave Castle sits on a small island in the River Dee, and in another part of this great estate, Threave Gardens should please keen gardeners – both are easily accessible from our holiday parks in Kirkcudbrightshire.
For something different, take a Tongland Tour – a guided visit to a beautiful art deco power station that includes a walk over the hydroelectric dam and its fish ladder. And no caravan holidays in Kirkcudbrightshire would be complete without a trip to the pretty town of Kirkcudbright itself – the Old Jail, the Tolbooth Art Centre and MacLellan’s Castle, set overlooking the wharves on the River Dee, all invite exploration.
