Mountainous glamping near Rockcliffe guide

Overview

The picturesque seaside resort of Rockcliffe lies along one of Scotland’s most beautiful coastlines, stretching along the Solway Firth on the southern edge of Dumfries and Galloway. The village’s rugged shoreline makes it a magnet for rock pooling, while the walk along the coastal path to Sandyhills offers views across the Solway to Cumbria and the Isle of Man. Wildlife enthusiasts can spot nesting seabirds, including razorbills and cormorants, along the coast and, at low tide, cross the causeway to the Rough Island bird sanctuary. Campers can pitch a tent at nearby sites that offer easy access to the area’s gems.

Where to go

Around Rockcliffe

Just south of the village, and within walking distance of such attractions as the Dark Age settlement Mote of Mark and three beaches, Castle Point Caravan and Camping Site welcomes touring caravans and campers to a small site with excellent views over the Solway Firth.

Along the Coast

Three miles east along the coast from Rockcliffe, Sandyhills Bay Holiday Park is just steps from a sandy beach. It’s an ideal location for exploring the coastal villages and activities such as sailing, fishing and horse riding. At the foot of wooded hills, the site offers a secluded atmosphere as well as glamping pods and spacious touring and camping pitches. Six miles further east, Southerness Holiday Park is a good pick for families.

Dalbeattie

Fewer than seven miles north of Rockcliffe, Islecroft Camping and Caravan Site offers a great base for hiking, fishing and exploring with easy access to the shops, pubs and restaurants of Dalbeattie, just a five-minute walk away. Under two miles (two kilometres) from the 7 Stanes mountain biking center, it’s a great choice for bikers. The site has hardstanding and grass pitches suitable for tents, caravans and motorhomes.

When to go

For enjoying the great outdoors, the summer is your best bet, but the season also brings large numbers of visitors. To avoid the crowds, opt for September or October: the temperatures are cooler but you’ll enjoy a more peaceful experience and some wonderful autumn colors. Note that, in order to protect nesting birds, visitors are not permitted to cross the causeway in May and June.

Know before you go

  • Many sites in the area are seasonal: check opening dates before travelling.
  • If you choose to wild camp, be sure to adhere to the Scottish Outdoor Access Code. 
  • The area is well-served by local buses, though having your own transport offers more flexibility 
  • You can stock up on food in Dalbeattie’s grocery stores. For camping gear, head for Dumfries.
