Caravan Sites, Caravan Parks and Campsites in Dumfries and Galloway

With an inventor and poet producing fine works in its area Galloway and Dumfries is not only home to fantastic historical sites but also breathtaking views and plenty of activities for those caravan enthusiasts  with a love of the out doors.

Not only can you camp here, take your caravan or motorhome, rent a static caravan but also stay in a tepee in caravan parks and sites of various sizes ranging from big and busy or small and tranquil. You can even set up camp in the Galloway Forest Park, Britain’s largest forest park and home to the United Kingdom’s first dark sky park where you can stargaze to your hearts content.

Whilst touring your caravan through its amazing landscapes you can stumble upon the popular Moffat Hills and its treasures such as the Grey Mare’s Tail, a stunning waterfall that is well worth the walk. Works of Art also feature in the landscapes such as the sculptures of the Cairnsmore of Fleet Nature Reserve.

Castles in this region are a must see with their historic stories; Caerlaverock Castle surrounded by a moat and with its unusual triangular shape is just one of these, caravanners can wander its gardens, view the stone carvings and the siege warfare exhibition; as well as the Children’s and adventure parks that provide caravanners of all ages a great day out.

Caravanners can also take a step back in time and walk along the Kirkpatrick Macmillan Trail taking in the historic locations surrounding the inventor of the world’s first pedal bicycle. The famous poet Robert burns also has roots in this area, his home in which he created his many works is open to the public. The old Blacksmiths Shop in Gretna Green is yet another historic location in this region where couples used to flee their disapproving surroundings to wed. Items such as telegrams and certificates from this time are on display to tell these dramatic and true love stories.
