Updated: 05-Oct-2016
Chalet in Kippford, Nr. Dalbeattie, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland - An Exclusive Private Development Nestling In Mature Woodland Above An Idyllic Coastal Village.

Kipppford is an idyllic coastal village nestling on the estuary of the river Urr where it joins the Solway Firth. The area is surrounded by unspoilt mature woodland, rocky cliffs and sandy beaches. The village's nautical origins date back to the fifth century AD and landscape wise, little has changed. Kipplochan is one of nine luxury log cabins which nestle round a small pond or "lochan" on a private and exclusive site on the north side of the village. The lodge is the largest of the nine on an exclusive site. It is bright, spacious and lavishly equipped in every way and is intended to provide a secluded and tranquil retreat but with all the comforts and technology of home. Free Wi-Fi, large flat screen HD televisions, high end HiFi, both Nintendo Wii and Microsoft Xbox gaming consoles, DVD player and SKY MOVIES AND SPORTS are all included in the package. We are suitable for families, couples, sailors, mountain bikers, in fact anyone other than stag or hen parties!

About the Owner

I am a busy mum of three . Kipplochan is also our family getaway and so I've tried to make it as user/ people friendly as possible! We love ambling down to the Anchor pub in kippford for tea , and there are great walks to rockcliffe with its pretty coastline ..plus the ice-cream van!

Excellent 3 bed roomed log cabin in an idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

We were all most impressed by accommodation especially my four year old grandson who was so excited at staying in a log cabin. The lodge felt like a home from home and was very well appointed & spotlessly clean. The owner Wendy was very helpful & friendly. Would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation to anyone. It was lovely to return to Kipford after a long absence We were attending a memorial walk at nearby Criffel Hill also visited Mabe farm park which my grandsons loved and Sandyhills beach. There was plenty of choice to eat out ranging from tea rooms to nearby Steamboat & the Anchor

Castle Douglas
Anchor Hotel at Kippford
The Mariner Hotel

From the Owner

Kipplochan is family owned run and loved , full of creature comforts for a relaxing break set in quiet peaceful surroundings yet close enough to explore the magical coast of southwest Scotland.

Activity and Interests

Car: recommended


Kippford lies at the mouth of the Urr estuary where the river joins the Solway Firth. The Colvend Coast is often referred to as the Scottish Riviera due to its mild climate and spectacular beaches. This secluded and rugged coastline was once a haven for smugglers, because then as now, it's practically empty of people.

Kipplochan is less than ten minutes walk to the nearest beach at Kippford. Others, such as Rockcliff or Sandyhills (see photograph) can be reached in under ten minutes by car.


Use of a car is highly recommended although the nearest public transport (bus) route passes the entrance to Kipp Paddock on an hourly basis.


Dalbeattie town is less than three miles away. Castle Douglas is ten miles away and Dumfries is eighteen miles away.

The M6 motorway is approximately forty three miles away.

Further Details:

There are three hotels close to Kipplochan which provide good meals. In Kippford village there is the Anchor hotel and the Mariner Hotel. Both have a friendly atmosphere and good food and are situated on the sea front. In the opposite direction and slightly inland is the Clonyard Hotel which is tucked away in mature woodland. This is more of a country house hotel and also has a friendly atmosphere and good food.

During the summer months there is a small shop on the local caravan site - five minutes away by foot, which sells essential items. If more substantial shopping is required then Dalbeattie town - three miles away - boasts three small supermarkets and numerous shops, pubs and restaurants.
