Riverview Cottage has a lovely edge of village location only a short drive or pleasant walk from amenities. Kippford is perennially popular, featuring beautiful coastal walks, as well as being on the edge of the Dalbeattie Woods, which is great for cycling and walking. There are two inns (serving meals and local ales), the RYA award-winning Solway Sailing Club, a cafe/gift shop, village hall, an RNLI station, 9 hole golf course with tea room, and a pottery. The small village of Colvend, just 2.5 miles along the A710, is home to an excellent village store, cafe, an 18-hole golf course, and the highest-rated primary school along the Solway Coast. The nearby town of Dalbeattie has a useful range of shops, cafes, hotels, restaurants, veterinary services, primary and secondary schools, health centre, solicitors, and a park. Castle Douglas, a market town known as Dumfries and Galloway’s Food Town, has in addition, many independent retailers, a thriving livestock market, and an eighteen hole golf course. The regional capital, Dumfries, (around 18 miles east) provides a wider range of services including a major hospital, the Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary. The town, once the home of the National Bard and Ploughman Poet Rabbie Burns, is now home to the Crichton campuses of Glasgow University and the University of the West of Scotland.
