Nestling between the Galloway hills and forests to the north and the sweeping beaches of the Solway Firth to the south, the historic market town of Castle Douglas has always been at the heart of local agricultural and commercial life. Today the town continues to flourish.
Livestock markets are still held every week, (usually Mondays and Tuesdays) attracting discerning buyers and breeders from around the world, while the town’s unique mix of businesses attracts shoppers and visitors time and again. Many of the shops in Castle
Douglas are unique to the town and are personally run, a common denominator in Castle Douglas.
Castle Douglas sits just off the main A75 Euro route and is approximately 1 hour from the M6/M74 at Gretna Green and 1 hour from the Ferry Ports of Stranraer and Cairnryan.
Prestwick Airport is also a little over 1 hour and the scenery is stunning on the drive down the A713
