Castle Point is a small site 300 yards from the sea.
The attractive beaches at Castle Point, Rockcliffe, and Glenstocken Cove are short walks from the site.
Castle Point itself is the site of an ancient Roman fort on a headland at the
estuary of the river Urr. The headland provides panoramic views across to the Lake District, the Isle of Man, Heston Island, Rough Island and up the estuary to
Kippford. There are lovely walks from the site - over the cliffs from Castle Point past Glenstocken cove, the Monument (lots of cormorants at nesting time ) and Sandyhills. Other walks are along the
Merse to Rockcliffe, along the Jubilee Path to the sailing village of Kippford (coffee or beer at the pub at the harbour), and up the Muckle
Knowe and Mote of Mark (a 5th Century fort). When the tide is out it is possible to walk from the site across to the
bird sanctuary of Rough Island. Information on walks around the site and in Galloway can be found at Walks in Galloway . This site also provides maps.
