Nights stayed: 2 Travelling as:  Mature couple
Reviewer: Mischka 60 reviews from this member

 This was our 3rd visit to this very scenic site right beside the beach. The site has many different areas, so there is a lot of choice regarding your outlook/orientation etc.

The ground is mainly level, but very undulating and very hard and stony. The pitches were very spacious, many people had awnings and windbreaks and boats on their pitch.

The staff were friendly and welcoming. Being as close to the sea obviously makes it quite exposed and breezy, although you can select a more sheltered pitch if you want.

There are 2 toilet blocks, both clean and warm. They have different cleaning times so there is always one open.

We drove to Drummore and then walked the coastal path down to the lighthouse. This was fabulously scenic but quite tricky in places. The most exposed part of the route was a narrow path with a steep drop down to the sea on one side.

On the other side was a field with a fence which looked nice and reassuring if you wanted to hold on at any point. Unfortunately it was an electric fence, so beware.

The café at Gallie Craig is in a stunning location and we had bacon rolls sitting outside in the October sun.

 First time at this site. Very warm friendly welcome, despite face coverings and perspex screen. We were fortunate to get a hardstanding awning pitch as there are very few. Awning put up, time to take the dog out.

The tide was out so there is a huge expanse of beautiful beach right In front of the site and coastal paths for miles in each direction.

Toilet blocks were usual C&MC high standard at the moment only 2 persons In at 1 time controlled with wrist bands, but seemed to work okay, but many people were forgetting their bands.

If you come here you need to be stocked up with everything you need, it's in the middle of nowhere, but beautiful scenery all round. We walked across to Port Logan, down to Drummore and up to Sandend.

So much to see. There is a small shop at nearby Ardwell for essential and fishing kit. This is a big site but doesn't seem like it as it's all divided into smaller sections.

We will be back.

 We have just returned from two weeks at this fantastic site! We loved every minute - even when it was wet and windy. We were very lucky with great weather the first week. The beach is just right for that early morning / early evening walk with the dog. Loads of wildlife right on the door - from seals to oyster catchers. The facilities were spotless and the staff really friendly.

As others have said you can choose your pitch - right on the sea front, or away from it all. Yes the site is a good 20 minute car journey from fuel and supplies - but that's why we went there, for the remoteness and tranquillity of it all. If you are seeking basics - meat, bread and fresh veg and don't want to travel then Drummore Stores are a good bet (10 minutes away). They had everything!

So many places to visit nearby - our favourite was Ardwell Bay (on the opposite side of the peninsula) - be warned, its a single track bumpy lane to get to it - but honestly it's worth it. All in all a fantastic site and area.

There are 2 toilet blocks, both clean and warm. They have different cleaning times so there is always one open. There is a large recreation room and a small information room. The reception shop sells the basics and on Tuesday and Saturday a hot snack van visits the site.

We cycled down to the lighthouse on one day which has a great café. The next day we cycled to Portpatrick which is a busy harbour town with lots of options for lunch.

 Love this campsite!

Ideal for dogs, right next to dunes and beautiful quiet dog-friendly beach.

Facilities up to usual immaculate CMC standards.

Closed for the winter now, sadly, but I'll be back as often as possible in 2019!

We had hoped to go cycling from this site, but it was very windy during our visit, so we can’t comment on the surrounding area, but I can say that the site is quite exposed to the wind.

 First time at this fantastic site. Generous pitches and site is really well laid out. Facilities immaculate and beach within touching distance.

Ground a bit uneven and very stoned underground so sturdy hammer needed even for rock pegs,

Highly recommended. Very friendly site. Idyllic location.

Reviewer: Paulmold 67 reviews from this member

 This is a big site but it doesn't feel like it as there are so many nooks and crannies and alcoves where you can be all alone or not, the choice is yours. Only a few hardstandings but the ground is hard anyway and not difficult to find a level spot.

Two toilet/ shower blocks are adequate and up to usual CAMC standards. Access to the beach is just yards away. Nearby towns/ villages are Stranraer and Portpatrick.

Stranraer has a Morrison's plus Aldi and Lidl for provisions and fuel. Nearby Castle Kennedy gardens is well worth a visit. Portpatrick is just a lovely seaside village with a few shops and cafe and a pretty harbour.

Also worth a visit is the Mull of Galloway, the furthest point south in Scotland with its lighthouse, RSPB sanctuary and a great cafe. Spectacular views.

Reviewer: Scoobyguy 8 reviews from this member

 Spent a very nice two weeks here usual caravan club site amenities and of course up too club standards both toilet blocks are of a good size for the site with fresh water and waste water points dotted around

Pitches are spaced nicely around and not overlooking one another the ground is quite stony so rock pegs are a must the views from a lot of the pitches have a wonderful view over the bay but some pitches are more secluded if you prefer there is one small kids play area and a games room with table tennis and pool I believe but with the beach on your door step there's a whole kids play area there !

Out and about from the site there are the botanic gardens just up the road and the light house at the end of the road at galloway BUT make sure when you arrive at site you have enough fuel too get you back the 13 miles or so too stranraer because that's the closet and only place you can get fuel ! also shopping is really only done at stranraer at the morrisons or tescos

I will certainly return at some time in the future when I want a unspoilt area too relax and unwind in again

Reviewer: LozzaS5 21 reviews from this member

 Geographically somewhere between Belfast and The Isle of Man but just 3 hours from Edinburgh.

Right by the sea with nicely secluded spacious pitches further back.

Usual Caravan Club standard facilities in a very peaceful area with great views and chirping birds.

Roads pretty quiet as towards bottom of Rhins Penisula on Mull of Galloway.

No pubs or food places within 30 mins on foot so car or bike required but hot snack van to site on a Friday or Saturday (fish and bakery vans on Weds). Shop has basics but more than expected.

Just need to be careful with rabbit holes but not a problem.

Site seems to drain well and not as windy as expected so possibly a nice micro climate.

Wardens helpful, friendly and not rule happy so first class.
