Garlieston CMC Site, Garlieston, DG88BS, Tel 01988600636

To Find Site:- From the A75 at Newton Stewart take the A714 to Wigtown and then the A746 signed for Whithorn. A few miles south of Wigtown filter left onto the B7004 to Garlieston. You will reach a garage at a cross roads, turn left here and make your way down to the seafront and turn right. Because of parked cars this road is essentially single track so look well ahead to make sure your exit is clear. The entrance to the site is on the left just before the road narrows. Don’t forget that arrival time is 1.00pm.

The Garlieston CMC site is in a wonderful location looking out over Garlieston Bay. The site is divided into two sections, Harbourside and the Walled Garden, the latter being across the road from the site reception, this section could probably be more sheltered if it was windy? In total there are just under 60 pitches, 30 awning pitches on hardstanding, 3 awning pitches on grass and the rest being non awning and about equally split between hardstanding and grass. Electric points are convenient to all pitches and are rated at 16 amps using CEE17 blue connectors. Some of the bollards are unusually tall, I assume to protect them against high tides? There are no TV connection points on the  but reception is rated as good. There are toilet blocks in both sections but the larger one in the Harbourside section contains a laundry and information room where as the Walled Garden has the motorhome service point which has an open grill waste water drain. Both blocks are of the older variety so clean and functional than that being luxurious. Other than the toilet blocks there are no other service points. There is site wide WiFi which can be purchased online if you are not already a subscriber. We were able to use the 4G data on our phones to connect the laptop to the internet. A fish and chip vans calls once a week, see details at reception. Other than toilet chemicals the site does not have its own shop.

This site can be a destination in its own right and for a couple of days its easy enough to while your time away wandering around the village and harbour. There are cycling and walking opportunities from the campsite. The Harbour Inn serves lunch and evening meals but they also do coffee if you prefer. The local garage you pass on the way into the village also has a small shop selling essentials. However, if you don’t wish to take your vehicle off site it might be sensible to have adequate provisions with you? There is a fairly regular bus service on the route between Whithorn and Newton Stewart.
