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'.

Outstanding Location & Hospitality

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.

Beautiful views

Just spent 2 nights on this peaceful, well kept site that has stunning views over the Solway and North to the Forest of Galloway hills. A warm, friendly welcome from Mrs Noble who is knowledgeable about this area. Wonderful coastline, interesting towns and harbours and very quiet roads. Entertainment in the form of Olly the cat and cattle in the adjacent fields!

OUTSTANDING - superb views and terrific welcome

This CL is an AMAZING position. Pitch your van and look out to sea! Pitch the other way and look to those hills! PEACE, TRANQUILITY - what more do you want? Mrs Noble is a splendid host who makes you so VERY welcome on arrival and throughout your stay. She is happy to advise re good walks and places to visit. Or if you prefer she leaves you to enjoy the peace of the wonderful countryside. Yes there is a minor issue with having to lift the wastewater container up a couple of feet to empty BUT if this is a problem to you then ask and Mrs Noble would allow you to empty in the hedges. The area is very scenic and we had no difficulty finding places to go and see. We walked every day too. If you require shops (other than the basic food shops) this may not be the area for you!! Daily essentials (milk, bread etc) can be found in Whithorn. Petrol is available there too (at a premium) The roads in the area are narrow but quite, very suitable for cyclists. WALKING is somewhat of a challenge in Scotland as there are no footpaths marked on OS maps! It is said you can walk ANYWHERE! Don't believe it! Get advice from the friendly locals. Places to eat can be found in Whithorn but try the Pheasant at Sorbie (about 5 miles) if thou fancy a superb italian meal at very reasonable cost. Very good cafe at The Whithorn Centre and also at the Isle of Whithorn (St Ninian's Tearoom) We hope to return.Highly recommended. Members WE need to use this site (and others like it) or we will lose it - YOUR support will help.
