 Visited this beautiful little treasure of a site during the May Day Bank Holiday. Very well tended grounds, huge pitches, some with EHUs. The toilets and showers were immaculate. There was a big laundry/washing up room, with scourers and washing-up liquid provided, and a big rec room, with tv, books, comfy settees, table and chairs, etc. Father in law went in there to watch Dalziel and Pascoe! T

he site is very small and quiet, but well-situated if you want to tour around Kirkcudbrightshire, Wigtownshire and Galloway. It is down a little single track past a lot of farms, and so there is no traffic noise, no passing cars, and if you stand at the gate, you can see Wigtown Bay! The owners were friendly and unobtrusive, and had a very friendly dog!

The entertainment for kids was a bit sparse, just a sandpit and a basketball hoop, but our 5 year old loved it, and the other children on the site just seemed to enjoy running wild around the site. We did not actually spend a lot of time on the site during the day!

It is a bit windy, so make sure you are very well pegged down, and some stone pegs would not come amiss! We had a big of a blow and rainstorm whilst we were there, and the pegs holding down our front porch popped free, collapsing it a bit, and we had to tie the guy ropes to the fence, but all was well, and it was fine the next day.

No bar, no club, no pool, no noisy neighbours, off the main road, quiet, peace, just what we were looking for, and we found it.

 We stayed at this campsite after reading the wonderful reviews on here. Lovely flat pitches which are 10 metres wide for those of us with large tents, the toilets and showers are free and very clean.
Free washing up liquid, scourers, ice also use of picnic tables. There is a local shop and pub a couple of miles away and supermarkets available in Newton Stewart which is around 8 miles away.
The only problem here was the ants which attacked me each night in bed!
One of the best campsites we have stayed at 9 out of 10.

 What a great little site. We chose Dunroamin after reading earlier reviews and were not disappointed.

The site is perfectly flat grass (heaven for those of us with large tents) with spacious marked pitches. Pitches round the sides of the field have electric hook ups, those in the centre don't. The site was quiet when we arrived and we were free to choose our pitch.

The friendly owners are tent campers themselves and the facilities have been thoughtfully planned. The showers and toilets were spotless, freshly decorated and looked brand new. Shower cubicles were huge, with plenty of well placed hooks for hanging clothes/towels. There is a family shower room too - but the main showers are so big that you could easily take kids in with you. Hot water is free, the facilities are open round the clock and they are centrally heated!

There is a laundry/washing up room - washing machine and tumble dryer (50p for 20 mins) although if the weather is good you can use the outdoor rotary clothes line. Immaculate washing up sinks with plenty of worktop space round them, cloths, scourers and washing up liquid all provided. There is a freezer for ice packs and ice is provided for campers to take for drinks.

The games room has a small TV, pool table and a selection of books. This is a real bonus on a chilly evening if you are tenting. For the kids there is a sandpit, swingball and basketball hoop.

There is a small shop in Kirkinner, just a couple of minutes drive away, a Co-op in Wigtown and a few more shops in Newton-Stewart. You do need to plan provisions ahead as this is not late-night or 24 hour shopping territory - one reason to come here! The Bladnoch Inn, just outside Wigtown, does reasonable bar-food but sadly no real ale.

£11 a night for 2 adults and monster tent - a bargain! We will definitely be back.

 This camping and caravan site is a quite a new site in that it is there third year. We camped here over the Easter period in our tent for a week. There is nothing on this site that could be faulted. The site is quiet and safe for families with small children with ample space for them to run free. The showers were hot, and I can only speak for the ladies loos were immaculate,however my husband said the same about the men's. The site is run by the owners and they show you individually around on arrival. Excellent well worth a visit.

 A relatively new campsite. Really lovely owners who let me borrow a tent when one of my poles snapped. The surrounding area is beautiful with many places to go for idyllic walks. Also, an Osprey pair breeding nearby for all those bird watchers! The campsite is an standard size. It can be a bit windy as the field is open from all sides however the views are stunning. The shower and washing facilities are excellent. Immaculately clean, warm and stylish. There are no shops near the campsite so some careful planning is needed. There are electric hook ups if needed and a couple of statics permanently on site which can be booked. Bikes can be securely locked in a large shed although the campsite does feel really safe and is after all quite far down a farm track.

An excellent site for walkers and mountain bikers and well worth a stay!

 This site is an absolute gem, flat level well drained pitches, with plenty of room to move around. Really inexspensive too.
The shower block is the cleanest most modern I have yet to find.
For dish washing, not only are you supplied with hot water, but the cloths, scourers and washing up liquid too!
There is a washing machine, tumbledryer, ironing board etc, oh and a radio to turn on and listen to while doing all of the latter. Washing line and pegs supplied as well.
There is a freezer to use free of charge for ice packs etc.
The best feature we found was the games/sitting room, great for use on wet nights, small pool table, television, books, games, jigsaws and more. Also a sandpit for toddlers, swingball, and basketball net.
All in all an excellent small site, the owners are in their second year and making improvement all the time. If I had a small criticism it would be that the site is very exposed, but hedges and trees have been planted all round to combat this. In a couple of years they will make a big difference.
Well worth a visit, site owner even came out to help pitch in very high winds.

Reviewer: The Pryce Clan 1 review from this member

 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.
