Explore The Scottish Riviera

Kippford is situated along the South West coast of Dumfries & Galloway, in a coastal region that has much in common with the South West coast of Cornwall: hence the coast from Dalbeattie to Southerness is known as The Scottish Riviera.


Like 'Kernow', the region is known for it's stunning seascapes, rugged cliffs and rocky coves, sites of religious significance, romantic castles, wild uplands, long sandy beaches, historic sites, and quaint harbour villages, all surrounded by picturesque countryside.

The areas also share a long maritime history, seafaring tales, legends, a fishing and ship building history, ship wrecks, and smugglers tales making it a culturally fascinating place to visit.

However, a lesser known fact is that the average temperature in Cornwall is only 0.5 degrees warmer than Dumfries & Galloway, summer days are shorter, and the average amount of rainfall  in both regions is similar.


The real difference between the two regions is the peace, quiet, and tranquility to be found in Dumfries & Galloway. Here there are open roads, deserted beaches, and walks where you can feel you have the trail to yourself. Also the area is characterised by incredible bio-diversity: a wide range of habitats, from the coastal areas of the Solway Firth and conifer forests of Galloway Forest Park, to the many lochs that are situated around the region making it a mecca for those interested in the outdoors, nature, wildlife, and flora.

The lodge is an ideal base to explore: The Scottish Riviera.
