Spent 4 nights here and deliberately chose it because we were looking for something a little off the beaten track and not too busy. Drumroamin doesn’t disappoint on either point being at the end of a farm track in a relatively sparsely populated part of Scotland. This doesn’t mean that the site is rough or basic though, in fact, it’s quite the opposite. The amenity block is newly built, is finished to a very high standard and is kept immaculately clean. The showers are spacious being the “wet room” type so no mouldy curtains to cling to you or leaky screens to bang your elbows on! There are also clothes washing and drying facilities which you’ll need 50p’s for but the freezer is free to use and is also kept stocked with free ice cubes. There is no on-site shop though, which you need to be aware of, so picking up that pint of milk or loaf of bread can be a bit of a trek as the nearest shop is maybe 3 – 4 miles away. If you need to do a ”proper shop” then Wigtown is about 5 - 6 miles way and has a small Co-op. Be warned though, the pace of life here may be very different to what you’re used to and you certainly won’t find 24 hour petrol stations, supermarkets and takeaways on hand! There are plenty of things to do if you’re happy driving a few miles. The children really enjoyed Monreith Animal World, the Butterfly centre and seeing the ospreys on CCTV in Wigtown. In fact, we’re fairly sure we saw one soaring over the campsite on our last day which was brilliant. The owners, Lesley and Ralph Shell, are very helpful, friendly and always on hand with advice or a chat! Overall, we had a lovely relaxing time and if you don’t being mind woken by the mooing of the cows at 5am then you will to!

Just had 3 nights at Drumroamin with my son and I can honestly say it was brilliant. The campsite is great, very quiet, ideal for families and couples.
The site itself is green and lush and there is lots of space with plenty electric and water points. It is an ideal base for visiting S/W Scotland. The owners, Lesley and Ralph are very helpful and the facilities are absolutely spotless. Now when I say spotless I mean spotless and I have not seen cleaner showers or toilets anywhere. There are 3 separate male showers and also a separate family room (not sure about female showers, but there is probably 3 as well) and also 3 sinks to do your dishes in and 1 to wash your clothes in as well as a washing machine and a dryer for which there is a small fee.
Next door to the shower block there is a room with a T.V, pool table, lots of tourist info (maps etc) and books to read.
If we return to this area of Scotland we would have no hesitation in returning although I think when we return it might be a bit busier as word gets around.

Just got back from a 2 week holiday staying at Drumroamin farm. The site is easily one of the best sites we have stayed on. The field is a flat grass field which is regularly mown. The pitches are wide and marked out so that you know where you can pitch your tent within a safe distance from others! Many of the of the pitches have EHU. The views across the bay and mountains are breathtaking.
The facilities are new and spotlessly clean with three showers in both male and female toilets plus a family/disabled room. The showers are also free with constant hot water. There are three indoor pot washing sinks plus laundry faciltiies ( sink,washer and dryer).
There is a games room with pool table, T.V, books and information leaflets. Outside there are swingball, netball and a covered sandpit for the children to play with.
It is the little touches added to this site that make it stand out from many others. The owners Lesley and Ralph are really friendly and helpful, nothing was ever too much trouble for them and they were always to be found to answer questions, offer help or cleaning! The pot washing area had washing up liquid, cloths and scourers provided and there is a freezer to freeze ice blocks and ice cubes were available too! All quiet from 10pm to 8 am was very much appreciated as we have 2 young children and this was enforced when necessary.
The site is 2 miles away from the village of Kirkinner where there is a little general store and a pub. We went to the the Kirkinner Inn a couple of times for a meal. It has a beer garden with a play area and the food was lovely and lots of it at reasonable prices! To walk off all that lovely food there is a peaceful woods a mile up the road from the site. We walked both trails in the woods one just over a mile and one 3 and a half miles.
We used the site as a base to explore The Machars area. The beach at Monreith was a beautiful sandy beach and very quiet. We also visited coastal villages, Port William was nice, and historical features such as Whithorn abbey, St Ninians Cave and chapel and hill forts. We took quite a long drive to visit the Mull of Galloway where the lighthouse is open to visitors at the weekend. Travelling north towards Newton Stewart we also explored the Galloway Forest Park with lovely trails to walk along. One activity we didn't try but will do next time is hiring a mountain bike from Newton Stewart and cycling around Kirroughtree Visitors Centre.
We only booked to stay at this site for a week but had such a wonderful holiday that we extended it to two weeks. We feel that we still have lots to do and will definitely return especially as we now know that we have found an excellent place to stay.
