Silvercraigs at Kirkcudbright. Cracking wee town with a fishing harbour & dark night skies; the Masonic Arms has a gin bar with over 100 different gins, which are served with the correct tonic & garnish. Local walks with red squirrels. Galleries & various festivals eg Festival of Lights later this year. Site is a charity run by the local community, you pick up your pitch when you book.
Others sites in Dumfries & Galloway are in walking distance of a small town with pub(s) (at Portpatrick, Castle Douglas, Gatehouse of Fleet, Kippford, Wigtown, Moffat…) None has an M&S through.

-------------
2024 = 7 sites / 15 nights. 2023 = 9/23. 2022 = 13/35. 2021 = 11/29. 2020 = 4/20. 2019 = 13/35. 2018 = 20/33. 2017 = 10/22. 2016 = 19/33. 2015 = 15 sites / 27 nights. Didn't count 1976 to 2014.

Does this query include sites that have a bar? Because the Site Finder lets you tick the option for pubs on site or within 1 mile.



That would be contradictory for me. I like to have a pub within easy walking distance, but I prefer NOT to have one on the site. We find that sites with a bar can be noisy, especially if your pitch happens to be quite near it, and we also find that sites with a bar tend to be more expensive, simply because they have a bar.

There is, or was, a CS called Bodewran Bach, in the middle of Anglesey, with a very small and quiet bar.
