Lovely campsite above the town of Kirkcudbright. Clean and well kept, nice hot and spacious showers. Now run by the local community so nice to be able to contribute to the local economy.

Booked on line as requested and received a confirmation email the next morning so very efficient.

Nice and peaceful despite being so close to the to the town. Pitches on hard standing a little small, grass pitches more spacious.

Definitely worth a visit.

Great location, easy walking distance into town, and good sized pitches. Toilet facilities are a little tired. And closed between 12-2pm every day. Not a problem for us as we were out, but worth noting. However they were very clean and the showers were great.

Everything you need is a short walk away, pubs, supermarkets, takeaways, and there are some lovely walks at the back of the site. I'd definitely go back to explore these more fully as we were only there 1 night.

I'd be happy to stay at the site again and would recommend if you are in the area.

First visit, lovely site, two minute walk into town. So peaceful with great hard standing or grass pitches.

Showers are well maintained as is the site itself. Now run by the community I would recommend it 100% no complaints.

Morning cuppa sat outside listening to the birds sing and watching the rabbits running about. Support the town and stay at this site.

This was our second visit to Silvercraigs (first was August 2017). Pleased to see further improvements to the site following the community takeover. Staff are very friendly and the site has a spacious feel and facilities are very well maintained.

Pitches are well positioned and we love the view over Kirkcudbright especially as the sun sets. Kirkcudbright is a great base for cycling or touring South West Scotland. Local amenities and shops are good and just a few minutes walk from the site. We have dogs so appreciate the easy access to woods on Barrhill (just behind the site) to exercise them. We'd recommend the fish and chips from Polarbites and also be sure to check out Cream of Galloway ice cream which is available in many places.

We hope to visit again next year on our annual road trip to Scotland which I hope sums up how we feel about this site.

This is our second visit in 3 weeks, that in itself should say it all.

Site is on an elevated position above the town which is great for food and bars.

Selkirk Hotel for beer garden and lunch

Wardens live on site and are very friendly.

Very good facilities, very well priced 24

Definitely one of our favourites.

Great site, situated in a great spot. 2 min walk into Kirkcudbright. With two dogs its woodland for walking was brilliant. Youngsters do sit in the park at night(which you go through to the town and woodland) but was not off putting to walk through for us, even me on my own. Overall I can't say enough about Silvercraigs we loved it. Will be back Thank you for a lovely stay

Reviewer: Fiona W 181 reviews from this member

The new owners have made recent improvements: additional hardstanding pitches (but you'll still need chocks); more hook-ups; you now get one key for the toilet block (was a key pad before); there's a drive-over motorhome dump (on a slope - very effective at draining the grey water tank!) with a long fresh water hose.

There is a new wooden fence to separate the camp site from the Council play area, where youngsters can gather after school. Plus a keypad security barrier at the vehicle entrance, and CCTV overlooking the right of way through the site. If that makes it sound a potentially troublesome site, it very much is not. Lovely & quiet at night, good night sky.

The Town Hall redevelopment will be completed very soon, bringing even better exhibitions to The Artists' Town. Our dog loves the extensive woods behind the site. 22 for hardstand & EHU; they do take cards for payment, but no recycling (a Council matter, not the site's fault). Ask for a pitch at the edge to get the best views over the town to the hills beyond at sunset.

Lovely place for a motorhome stay because it is so convenient for town. Go out at the play park end and there is a small supermarket; another fifty yards and you are in the town centre shopping and like many small Scottish towns it has some good independent stores.

The site is part of a municipal park with swing and roundabouts for children.

Now run by a trust which also runs the municipal swimming pool.

We would recommend the Selkirk Arms for a quality meal but not low cost.

If anything the showers were too hot. Be careful with small children.

A lovely site, our second stay and we will be back!

Just back from a nice wee stay at Silvercraigs the campsite gave a very safe feeling for we had kids with us and this alone is worth the fee. A big plus is the view from the site and the long term campers who love this site and return year after year thy are so nice it makes me very proud to say that I have stayed at this site. The Wardens are just so helpful even the grass cutting team have got to be up there with them at five star. The facilities are clean and tidy and kids loved the playground and football park. Shops very handy at bottom of hill. The locals are fun and warming. Hope to go back soon.
