Burrowhead Holiday Village is a beautiful family owned holiday park, designed for tent, motorhome, lodge and caravan holidays in Scotland. It is set in a rural location on the Dumfries and Galloway coast. The park is family and pet friendly and offers exceptional views across the Irish Sea and of the Solway Firth and the Isle of Man, as well as access to miles of rugged and unspoiled coastline. Although the park is in a remote location, the huge selection of facilities and activities offered at the site makes it the perfect place for family holidays.
The park opens from early March and remains open until early January, and has a range of accommodation options available to guests. There are 90 touring pitches available for guests with motorhomes and touring caravans, there are 22 pitches for guests with tents, while there is a holiday home and lodge to rent, as well as 10 chalets for hire. Burrowhead Holiday Village also has a large number of holiday homes and lodges for sale for those who would like to buy holiday homes in Scotland.
You can also rent seasonal holiday pitches at Burrowhead Holiday Village, if you would like to leave your caravan on its pitch and return for lots of breaks throughout the year.
All of the touring and motorhome pitches benefit from electric hook up. Additional facilities available for guests to use during their stay include sanitary blocks, a laundrette, washing up area, and a chemical waste disposal point. The site has a private water supply, with taps available across the park. Unless you're used to the local water, it's probably best to boil it before drinking, or stock up on bottled water.
A family bar (with free wifi) and café facility found at Burrowhead Holiday Village means you will always be able to pick up something to eat and drink, while the on-site shop is well-stocked with a variety of goods for self-catering. There's a takeaway food option at the holiday park, too.

Away from the park, you must visit the nearby beaches. If you enjoy sea fishing, it's worth knowing that this is permitted off the rocks at Burrowhead or at the local beaches and it's a popular pursuit undertaken by many guests staying at the park.
Guests looking to travel inland or further around the coast can enjoy beautiful countryside walks, with ancient ruins and much more to be discovered, or hop in the car and discover the quaint fishing villages that are found across Dumfries and Galloway.
Visit Stranraer, the nearest major town, which is found 30 miles away and is home to some great shops as well as museums, art galleries, and various other attractions. If you're feeling adventurous, you could also take the ferry to Northern Ireland from Cairnryan for a short break within your holiday.
