About the location

GATEHOUSE OF FLEET

Kirkcudbright 8 miles; Newton Stewart 15 miles; Castle Douglas 15 miles.

Peaceful in its pastel colours, the small country town of Gatehouse of Fleet lies on the Solway Firth, in the midst of Dumfries & Galloway countryside, with good sandy beaches a five minute drive away. The town was founded in the 1760s as a mill community and today the nearby Mill on the Fleet - a visitor centre in a former bobbin mill - tells the tale of Gatehouse’s cotton spinning days. Today there are several shops in the town including a small supermarket, chemist, bank and Post Office, along with two book/gift shops, a kilt making centre and two cafes. All four pubs in the town have restaurant facilities and welcome children. Castle Douglas, a 15 minute drive away, offers an extensive range of shops, Threave Gardens and boating on Carlingwark Loch.
