Gatehouse of Fleet lies within the Fleet Valley National Scenic Area and is surrounded by ancient woods and hills. The northern coastline of the Solway Firth is renowned for its mild climate beneficial to the many botanic gardens in the area and picturesque beaches within close proximity to Gatehouse at Sandgreen and Mossyard.
Gatehouse is seen as a popular tourist destination but there is a keen sense of community within the town with a cricket club, football club, bowling club, tennis club and nine hole golf course not for the faint hearted. There is sailing and sea angling on the Solway as well as other water sports, the area’s rivers and lochs provide good opportunities for salmon, sea trout and trout fishing.
The town also hosts an annual Summer Gala and Midsummer Music festival. Locally Wigtown book festival has been running for over 15 years and won numerous awards.
Gatehouse provides a primary school, doctor’s surgery, community centre, hotels and pubs as well as local amenities with a post office, chemist, coffee shops and two small supermarkets. A wider range of services can be found in the surrounding towns of Kirkcudbright also known as Scotland’s Artist Town, with its blue flag marina, Castle Douglas and Newton Stewart. The regional capital of Dumfries offers a major hospital, leisure complex, a range of high street shops, retail parks and large supermarkets.
Gatehouse of Fleet is also famous for its varied wildlife, with the Galloway Red Kite Trail is in close proximity set in lovely scenery and a great attraction for walkers and cyclists. The nearby Galloway Forest Park spans 777 km2 of forested glens, lochs with an outstanding variety of wildlife, including red squirrels, fallow deer and a variety of birds of prey. The forest park was the first in the UK to be awarded with “Dark Sky Park status” in 2009 by the International Dark Sky Association.
