If you love the great outdoors, you'll find Dalbeattie fits the bill. There are lots of things to see and do in the area including good walking and cycling trails, golf courses, picturesque lochs and a large park for the children to explore. Not to mention miles of quiet coastline with some of the most beautiful beaches in the country and the challenging mountain bike trails of the Town Wood.

Auchenhill Lodge Ref: CC537045
Nestled in an idyllic private woodland setting, Auchenhill Lodge offers a lovely relaxing retreat close to Kippford, often described as Scotland’s ’Riviera’. Locals refer to this area as ’The Golden Triangle’ - Colvend, Rockcliffe and Kippford - and frequent visitors understand why. The climate is temperate as Galloway is touched by the Gulf Stream with many golden, sandy, and often empty beaches to explore. For excellent views of the Rough Firth estuary, the Jubilee Path is highly recommended. This was named to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee and is the main path between Kippford and the equally charming village of Rockcliffe. There are wonderful views out to sea, and the path passes Mark of Mote, 1 100-foot high granite outcrop, with a Dark Age settlement on top. Rockcliffe and Sandyhills (with a beautiful sandy beach as its name implies!) are small Victorian bathing resorts close by. Kippford was once a smuggler’s haunt with a wealth of stories and legends to discover and is now a pretty sailing resort with quaint fisherman’s cottages. There is a low tide walk from the beach to Rough Island. Scotland’s only round tower house, Orchardton Tower, is a must to visit with its spiral staircase hidden within double walls leading to a parapet.
Please note: auchenhill Lodge is also available to let with the adjoining property Forest Lodge, for a combined family holiday.

Ground Floor: Property is all at ground floor level, fully central heated and comprises:
