Great site. Very easy check in.

Absolutely fabulous views in the tent area on the top field but please be very thoughtful when considering where to pitch as we were caught out by the fab views meaning we pitched our tent right at the top field for the view as on arrival weather was fab but it didn't take long for this to change and by this it did with the wind, so we ended up on edge because of the force it was coming which led us not being able to venture very far and being prepared for a quick pack up but this has no affect whatsoever on the sites excellent facilities and service. There is plenty in the area to get out and about to see and the nearby town has a few pubs takeaways and convenient stores.

We would definitely return to the site but sacrifice the view and pitch lower down the field.

At least we no our tent can withstand gale force wind 🤗🤗

Lovely position, no hard standing but grass close cut and firm slight slope so needed ramps. We were in lower field good views. Very good shower and clean facilities. Good laundry and wash up room, useful info room with books and guides. Quiet at night when we were there. Walks on coast path from site, but no pub or shop in walking distance. Good walks at Sweetheart Abbey.

Found this via this website. Looking for somewhere with beautiful views and that did not disappoint.

Weather was dry from start to finish which probably affects this review. There's nowhere quite a beautiful as Scotland when it's sunny (or even when its not!)

We pitched on a level site on the upper hill. Electric hookups are dotted around though on the hilly part of the site it's not terribly clear where the pitches are meaning that people locate themselves all over the field. Our car was blocked in at one point. Another time someone pitched right in front of us taking up the view but hey ho that's camping …. If pitches aren't clearly marked then all's fair. We gleaned from one of the staff that tents are meant to be 3m away from each other for fire regulations. My recommendation is to pitch with your door facing the fence in the lower half of the field for an uninterrupted view (over the dreaded statics, mind you)

There's a laundry and games room/information room mainly occupied by wifi deprived teenagers with scowling faces - there is wifi on site but like others say, don't rely on it. Come here to get away from it all! There are two areas with football goals - a great idea, and there seemed to be a lot of children playing there. No play area for wee ones, if you are looking for that.

Dalbeattie is only 10 mins drive away for milk/bread etc - there's nothing available on site nor any shops in the nearby hamlet of Rockcliffe. Heartily recommend walking across the bay/tidal causeway at low tide to Rough Island - fabulous views down the Solway Firth.

My main constructive criticism is towards the toilet facilities. It was made to clear to us by the person on duty that the toilets etc in the upper field are for the campers. The showers are large, spacious and modern with great water pressure. One has a shower seat in it for disabled persons. I think there were 2 or 3 showers. However - loos. There are TWO unisex loos plus a male set of toilets - I think there are urinals plus cubicles in the male loos. Therefore there are only two loos that women can use and most of the time I was waiting to go, men came out, as they are the first two you come across as you enter the toilet block. The sinks are in here. So it follows that there are only two sinks and two toilets ALL the women in the campsite can use. Both nights I waited 15 mins just to go to the loo.

Add to that, every time I went in, there was urine all over the seat (sorry guys but it's true), meaning it has really put me off this campsite and I wouldn't return. Specially when I saw the loos for the touring caravans a wee walk down the hill (which you aren't going to do in the pitch dark) had a womens block with 5 or 6 toilets and sinks separately. There's nothing worse than feeling you are second class as a camper!

So to the owners - please could you even put a sign on the Unisex toilets making them female only? (cheap and easy) Could you even put a couple of sinks outside for hand washing/teeth cleaning? or even better, build even just one or two more toilets?

Great coastal location with a short walk to the beach. The facilities are basic but clean and well kept. The owner is friendly and helpful but bring cash as there are no card facilities. The pitches are not hard standing but are pretty level and well drained. There is not a motorhome service point but we tend to fill from an aquaroll and use an external tank so that is not a problem. The site is very relaxing with superb views and lovely walks. Lovely site for a relaxing few days

Loved it.

Arrived on the 28th July to a stunning view and a very warm welcome (always a good start…)

We were directed to the top part of the site, with a promise of stunning views, and my god did we!. Full view all the way to Rockcliffe over looking Rough Island.

It was nice being so high up, as you could watch the rain come in, and it did, but we we’re on holiday so the BBQ was lit regardless.

Only very slight remark I would say is the placement of the electric hook ups, they seemed a little few and far between, and if the site was fuller than it was when we where there, you would need a fairly long cable to hook up. But that’s it, the only very minor issue, and it is minor.

Grounds are kept lovely, grass kept well, visitor room with a well stocked supply of flyers and site information, toilets and washing area spot on.

The rain thankfully moved on after about 30mins to produce a beautiful early evening sky, and having a dog with us, decided it was probably best to go explore! Just before the entrance to the site Is what looks like a private road, this leads down straight to the shore line. Absolutely stunning. Follow this and it brings you to Rockcliffe and the Beach. Wow. Our little dog absolutely loved it, exploring the rock pools and the various marine life the tide left behind. But you just cant get enough of the smell. It’s a lovely fresh sea air smell with a hint of salty seaweed.

Two nights, spent on a lovely peaceful site with stunning views, would certainly visit again… Good work Castle Point. :)

From booking to leaving the site the whole experience was absolutely brilliant.

The wardens are amazing, friendly and so helpful.

The site is spotless, well kept and has a beautiful view.

Showers and all other related washing facilities were perfect, clean and well situated. The showers also have a good bit of power.

Castle point view is set in the picturesque area of Dumfries and Galloway and very close to the food town of Castle Douglas and the artists town of Kirkcudbright.

Well worth a visit, we can't wait to return. In fact it might be next week !

Site location - as above plenty to see and do in area, and if not wishing to travel the scenery and nearby beach is stunning.

Site facilities - as above, perfect

Value for money - exceptional

Customer service - out of this world

Child friendliness - my 1 year old tried to steal the wardens and ice cream and got a smile and laugh !

Overall rating - not a thought in this 10/10
