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'.
