Auchencairn is a small picturesque village on the coast road from Dalbeattie to Kirkcudbright.
Auchencairn is a village of whitewashed stone cottages close to the head of Auchencairn Bay. It dates from the early 17th century and once gained notoriety for smuggling. Those days are long gone and Auchencairn remains a pretty place in a quiet setting, just under eight miles from Dalbeattie on the A711. Food is available and there is a village shop and post office.
