Auchencairn itself is a delightful Galloway village close to Auchencairn Bay, an inlet of the Solway Firth, located approximately 10 miles east of Kirkcudbright and 7 miles west of Dalbeattie. The village itself has a range of local facilities including Primary School, garage, convenience store and Post Office, Church, award winning community garden and bowling green. The well renowned Balcary Bay Hotel is within walking distance.
Nearby Castle Douglas is a thriving Galloway market town lying approximately 18 miles south-west of Dumfries and enjoys an enviable range of shops, restaurants and other facilities in a town now promoted and known as the “Food Town”.
The south-west of Scotland is a genuinely rural area with its gentle rolling landscape, mild climate and dramatic coastline. The area has a good range of sporting and outdoor activities, with opportunities to take shooting in the area, fishing on the nearby rivers and of course golf. The Solway Coast is also a popular yachting destination enjoying excellent facilities at Kirkcudbright and nearby Kippford. The very popular “7 Stanes” forest cycle pathway is also close by in the town of Dalbeattie, some 8 miles from Auchencairn.
