Really nice place.
This site resides in a beautiful part of Dumfries, the tent pitches were near to the entrance of the site overlooking the pool and the playpark away from the caravans.
The toilet block was clean and well maintained, and site staff were very helpful and on hand if required. In addition the site has a hot-tub! (every site should have one LOL) nothing better than getting up after a cold night and slipping into a large hot-tub to take the aches and pains away. :)
There is a small village around the campsite with a few bars that serve nice food. There is a gem rock museum and it's reasonably near to a town called Kirkcudbright which is nice for a wander. If you visit you must go to Mullberries for the best meal ever and lovely flavored hot chocolate.
I would definately recommend this site
