 Pleasant, peaceful site in a hamlet.

Helpful, friendly staff.

Facilities clean and basic.

Little or no telephone signal on site.

Details of one place to eat near by but an expensive menu.

Reviewer: Lindamcp2 1 review from this member

 Site was lovely were well maintained.

It is a very quiet and remote location. Owners very friendly and helpful.

The only downside was no access to WiFi and unable to use mobile data as no signal. This site states WiFi access but this is not the case.

 This is a beautiful peaceful campsite.

We enjoyed our one night stay here and did a lovely walk from the campsite.

We did not meet the owner but the warden John was very attentive to a problem we had with our Motorhome water pump and went above and beyond in an effort to solve the problem. Much appreciated.

 "Peace, perfect Peace"

The site and facillities are clean and well cared for by Sheila and John who welcomed us to the site, we being

Very mature novices to Motorhoming were grateful for their helpful advice.

Ellisland Farm (Robert Burns) is close by. Drumlanrigg castle at Thornhill is well worth a visit as is the

Bird Sanctuary at Caerlaverock castle. Ae Forest is also close by, Galloway Forest a little further.

Arriving late, we stopped off at the Solway Gate Restaurant (on the outskirts of Dumfries 8 miles from Red Squirrel)

And had a welcome hot meal.

We highly recommend the Red Squirrel Campsite.

Thank you,

 A small friendly and adult only quiet site in a pretty spot. Grassy pitches with hook up.

Only 1 toilet and separate shower room. Spotlessly clean.

Multipurpose cooking and cleaning room.

Honey for sale made on site by Hamish.

Reviewer: Pcroud 1 review from this member

 This is a lovely site, nestled in the hills. It can take about 10 outfits on the grass field. It's quiet and so you can hear birdsong all the time.

There can be midges although that's not why the hamlet gets in name; its' a corruption of 'Mids' (I think. Margaret explained to me why it's called Glenmidge and it's got nothing to do with the little blighters!)

Shower and toilet block are very clean.

Hamish keeps (a lot of) bees and you can buy honey.

New wardens, John and Sheila, have recently arrived and are lovely.

It's a super wee site and the cycling and walking s superb. Good cafes in Thornhill.

 The Red Squirrel campsite, is small but has everything you need for a quiet break.
