Things to do in Dumfries and surrounding area

Kippford, the Solway Coast, Dumfries and Galloway have so much to offer to every visitor who comes to stay.

Beaches including Sandyhills for all the family and Castle Point for those who prefer a little seclusion.

Birdwatchers have the Rough Island reserve only a short walk along the front at Kippford, easy to reach and lots to see.

For those looking to keep the kids amused there are plenty of places locally to burn off some stored up energy, the Cream O' Galloway farm and Drumlanrig Castle adventure playground to name a couple.

Golfers of every ability are catered for with a Championship links course a short drive away or if you fancy introducing the kids to the game a 9 hole par 3 course in Kippford.

Sailing is one of Kippford's main attractions with the Solway Yacht Club in the village or Loch Ken sports centre a few miles away.
