This site is a large low walled paddock surrounded by fields a short distance from the farm. There is a centre spine of hard standing with five ‘van wide hard standing pitches on one side and a large grass area on the other. It is well away from everything apart from the farm and its activities, with a pub/eaterie about one mile away, and a shop a bit further. Motor transport does put a lot more places within reach including the town of Dalbeattie.
Google maps aerial view is more up-to-date than the maps as there is now a road and culvert that lets one walk/cycle over to Dalbeattie Forest. Views are restricted by surrounding hills. Not surprisingly, there is no phone signal on O2, Orange or Vodafone but there is free wifi in the pub down the road.
A better route to the site for many will be to leave the A711 about a mile north of Dalbeattie and turn onto the B793 heading south east. Fork right in about 4 miles and site is on right immediately after a side road joins on the left.
