Great little stop over

Whins
Pros: Access good Excellent views £15 with EHU Very quiet Cons: Probably not suitable for very large vehicles if 3 or 4 units already on site. Ramps might be needed. A definite place to stay just for the peace and quiet, it is a working farm, but very little noise. Owners are very nice

Used the CL on way up to the Highlands. Super little site with all facilities to hand. Pleasant welcome and glorious scenery.

Lovely little site

Whins
We stopped over for 1 night on our way North. It was very easy to find; close enough to the A74 to make it an easy break but far enough to not have any road noise. A great view across the fields and if clear enough you can see the Isle of Man. Reasonably priced petrol stations in Lockerbie, just down the road. We have quite a long car & caravan combination. Maneuvering with the motor mover was needed as the sute is quite narrow but was no problem.

We stayed for one night on way up to the Highlands. Owner was very pleasant and we would probably had a longer chat had it not been raining. We found the CL a little narrow to manoeuvre and levelling blocks required due to the slope. The views were stunning. The bins and waste area were tidy and out of the way the other side of the gate.

Whins, Ecclefechan....a braw wee site.

Whins
This is a grand quiet basic farm site with EHU and 2 H/S pitches. It could be a bit cramped with 5 vans but there is room. The site is easily reached being less than 3 miles from the A74(M) junction 20, the last 1/2 ml or so is along a tarmac farm road, which is ideal for walking ones dog being virtually traffic free. It commands good views over open fields towards The Solway and Criffel and there is a footpath behind the site up into a wood where one might see Red Squirrels. There are plenty of places of interest close within easy driving distance such as the Thomas Carlyle's birthplace, Caerlaverock Castle, Sweethearts Abbey and the forest at Ae and Mabie. There is good low level walking around the Hoddom estate on marked trails. Annan is about 4 miles from the site and has an Aldi and a Tesco with petrol. It is an ideal site for those that just want an overnight stop when travelling to of from Scotland, or as a base to explore The Solway Coast. Great value at £10 per night and we will certainty be using it again.
