For walkers, the Dalbeattie area offers numerous opportunities, for keen ramblers, dog walkers, and gentle family strolls alike.
Walks along the Solway Coast begin at Sandyhills, with gentle walks possible around the “Rockcliffe Riviera” and scenic Kippford. Forestry Commission walks at Mabie and Dalbeattie are excellent for all and within a short travelling distance.
For the more adventurous, try climbing the Criffel or Screel hills, or head inland to discover Galloway Forest and its Dark Skies.
Ordnance Survey maps and walking books are available to buy in reception, with many of the lodges and cabins having free copies to borrow during your stay.
