Why stay here ...

Welcome to Burgess Outon CL.

We are a small farm with livestock, many sheep, hens and occasionally pigs and sometimes have farm produce for sale. We are sorry but we are not able to accept dogs on our site.

We are a green site requiring visitors to use green fluids in their toilets and grey waste water. 

LOCATION - We are situated in a quiet location with extensive views of the sea and the Galloway hills. We are ideally situated for those seeking peace and quiet or for the more adventurous there are excellent opportunities for walking, cycling and other outdoor activities near by.  The CL is situated in the heart of the Machars Peninsular with rolling hills, and over 300 miles of coastline to enjoy, with quiet roads and friendly people it's an ideal location.

We are sorry but electric cars cannot be charged on this CL.

BEACHES - We are near to Rigg Bay near Garlieston. The beach is accessed through Galloway House Gardens with magnificent displays of plants and trees especially rhododendrons in the Spring. There is a beautiful walk from the beach to what remains of Cruggleton Castle along the coastal path. Another beach lies to the south of us at Monreith just past the St Medans golf course.

WALKING - Kilsture Forest a short drive away has many trails for the walker. Look for the fine specimen larch trees and the views out to lush pasture from the margins of the forest. For the more adventurous the Galloway Forest Park to the north has over 300 square miles of forest, mountain, rivers and loch to explore. There are visitor centres at Kirroughtree and Glentrool.

FISHING - Galloway offers great fishing in rivers, lochs and off shore.

GOLFING - There are two courses nearby both 9 hole at Wigtown and Monreith and an 18 hole parkland course at Newton Stewart.

WHITHORN AND THE ISLE OF WHITHORN - Where St. Ninian brought Christianity to Scotland. Whithorn Museum houses a remarkable collection of Christian crosses and the nearby Isle of Whithorn with its pretty harbour, is the site of the ruins of St Ninian's Chapel. Visit St Ninian's Cave via a beautiful walk down through the woods to the shore from Glasserton. Visit the pretty Isle of Whithorn harbour and walk from the harbour up the hill towards the cairn where you will see great views to the Isle of Man.

WIGTOWN - Wigtown is Scotland's National Book Town, with 20 book related businesses and with the usual shops, inns, and cafes. The former County Building is newly restored and has a viewing room where nesting Ospreys can be seen on CCTV. For the bird lover there is a bird hide down by the harbour overlooking the Wigtown Bay wetlands.

GARDENS - Dumfries and Galloway is renowned for its gardens all helped by the milder climate due to the gulf stream. Claymoddie Gardens, Glenwhan Gardens, Castle Kennedy Gardens and Logan Botanical Gardens are all well worth a visit.

CYCLING - The National Cycle Network crosses the Machars of Galloway with miles of stunning scenery, from coastline to forests. For mountain biking visit two of the '7 stanes' trails located at Kirroughtree and Glentrool both rated 'World Class'.

A warm welcome and spectacular views

Burgess Outon Farm
We enjoyed two nights here last week. This is a well appointed site, beautifully looked after by the owner, Judith. The views from the site are spectacular, looking out to sea. Judith gave us a very warm welcome and was full of good advice on the local attractions. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for Judith as she helped us fix our awning, which broke during our stay. Definitely recommend this site as a base for exploring this part of Dumfries and Galloway.

Galloway at its best

Burgess Outon Farm
What a beautiful CL in Scotland’s best-kept secret of Galloway. Judith is an outstanding host who is warm and friendly and made me feel most welcome during my four days with her. The views from the CL are superb in all directions across to the Galloway hills, across the Solway Firth to the Lake District, and even the Isle of Man. The facilities are immaculate and Judith is also establishing a beautiful wild flower garden and ponds which can be accessed from the CL. What a haven of peace and tranquility close to the lovely historic towns of Whithorn and Wigtown, and pretty seaside villages such as Garlieston and Isle of Whithorn. Judith has a wealth of knowledge about the local area and has created a very peaceful and relaxed atmosphere on the CL. A beautiful rural retreat to which I plan to return. Thank you Judith!

4 days of peace and quiet

Burgess Outon Farm
We have just returned from spending 4 nights at Judith’s haven of peace. She has a wealth of knowledge of the area especially the gardens, particularly useful to us being keen visitors. We found her advice very helpful and her recommendations were spot on for all of the places we travelled to. The site is well placed for touring the area which we found beautiful and well worth visiting. The facilities are clean and tidy and Judith is putting a lot of effort into landscaping the surroundings with water features that will attract wildlife. The views are amazing with rolling countryside, herds of cattle and flocks of sheep being the only signs of life. The sea is to be seen in the distance but is only a few minutes away and there are many small harbours and beaches close by. Having only scratched the surface we will be back.

Outstanding Location & Hospitality

Burgess Outon Farm
We had a fantastic 7 night stay during the month August 2020. We were after a small quiet site with a view and Burgess Outon Farm did not disappoint. Lots of places to explore in the area with the site itself perfect for as a place to unwind The facilities were clean and the site is very well kept, we shall most definitely be visiting Burgess Outon Farm again very soon.
