Castle Point Caravan Site, Rockcliffe, Dalbeattie, Dumfries & Galloway
Castle Point Caravan Site is a small site 300 yards from the sea and within short walking distance to three sandy beaches located in Dalbeattie in Dumfries & Galloway.
The site and its surrounds have some of the best views in south-west Scotland. We welcome touring caravans and campers and those wishing to hire holiday homes.
Holiday Home Hire caravans are available to rent for short breaks or on a weekly basis. All caravans can accommodate up to six people. They have a double bedroom and a room with two single beds (that can be put together). The dining area has an additional double bed when needed. All rooms, including the bedrooms, have heating. Windows are double glazed and the caravans have extra insulation.
All hire caravans have good sea views, large balconies with table and chairs. All have a TV, DVD player, hob and oven, microwave, refrigerator, shower, toilet and well-equipped kitchens. Pets are accepted in some of the hire caravans. Bedding is supplied except for sheets and pillowcases. Gas, electricity and access to Wi-Fi hot spot are included in the prices.
Also available onsite are facilities for campers, tourers and motorhomes.
Castle Point itself is the site of an ancient fort built on a headland at the estuary of the River Urr. The headland provides panoramic views across to the Lake District, the Isle of Man, Heston Island, Rough Island and up the estuary to Kippford.
There are lovely walks from the site - over the cliffs from Castle Point, along the Merse to Rockcliffe, along the Jubilee Path to the sailing village of Kippford (coffee or beer at the pub at the harbour), and up the Muckle Knowe and Mote of Mark (a 5th Century fort). When the tide is out it is possible to walk from the site across to the bird sanctuary of Rough Island. Information on walks around the site and in Galloway can be found at Walks in Galloway.
The site is very close to the 7 Stanes cycling path. We offer a locking cycle shed for bikes (and a drying room if it is wet).
Watersports, archery, laser quest and other activities can be found at the Galloway Activity Centre and at The Laggan Outdoor Centre. Children will also enjoy the animals and activities at Mabie Farm Park.
Pony trekking is also available nearby. It is a short drive or walk to the popular sailing centre of Kippford with its pubs and restaurants.
