With special street lighting, the town is a Dark Sky town, so bound to be a hit with stargazers.
Fishing for wild brown trout is possible in season in the nearby River Annan (although permits are usually required) and there are also coarse fishing lakes in the area. Holidaymakers who enjoy walking and hiking will want to explore the local hills and the Southern Upland way.
For days out, Gretna Green with its shopping village is just half an hour’s drive away.
Also just half an hour’s drive away is the county town of Dumfries with its good choice of shops and restaurants.
