Tir Nan Og has superb sea views to Hestan Island and Rough Island and makes a wonderful base for a family holiday. Rockcliffe's popular sandy beach, only about a half mile walk, can be enjoyed by all and has fascinating rock pools to explore. Numerous footpaths are close by, including the Solway Coast footpath taking you to Castle Point; the path continues to the vast sandy beach at Sandyhills. Alternatively, the Jubilee Path will lead you to Kippford for lunch or afternoon tea at one of the popular waterfront pubs in the village.
Sporting facilities abound with gliding near Dalbeattie, sailing at Kippford and Loch Ken, 18 hole golf courses at Colvend (three minutes by car) and the championship links course at Southerness, with many others nearby. Dalbeattie and Mabie Forests are both easy to reach with extensive forest trails for walking and bikes; two of the stages of the 7Stanes mountain bike network are located in the woods. At Mabie there is also an adventure playground for children. Further 7stanes trailheads can be found further afield in The Galloway Forest Park at Kirroughtree and Glentrool.
More gentle pursuits are well provided for with bird and wildlife reserves at WWT Caerlaverock and RSPB at Mersehead, both only a short drive away, and the Galloway Forest Park (also a Dark Sky Park) is also within easy reach.
Local amenities include a shop and seasonal cafe at Colvend, 2 minutes away by car, and a seasonal shop/cafe at Sandyhills, as well as a wide range of amenities in Kippford, mobile post office at Colvend and mobile library.
