Castle Douglas – Dumfries & Galloway`s Food Town

Enjoy retail therapy in the hustle and bustle of this market town’s great independent shops, purchase locally-produced food and relax at Threave Gardens where the National Trust’s gardeners are trained.

Castle Douglas is a small town situated between Dumfries and Kirkcudbright. With Loch Ken to the north it makes an ideal centre for exploring Dumfries and Galloway. Threave Castle, the stronghold of the Black Douglases lies very close to Threave Gardens which is well worth visiting. Castle Douglas has been launched as a Food Town and visitors can enjoy a variety of foods in Castle Douglas, whether Eating Out or merely buying quality food products.

Parking a car is easy and free either on the High Street or preferably in the large car park at the top of the town. The town is easily explored by walking down one side of the street and back up the other side. Castle Douglas is well known for its independent shops. Many stores and cafés sell local produce of a high quality and it is easy to see why the town has become known as “The Food Town” of Dumfries and Galloway. Clothes retailers and quality shoe shops attract many shoppers. All in all Castle Douglas is well used by local people looking for quality produce at a reasonable price.

Sulwath Brewery is a small independent brewer located on the High Street and is well worth a visit. Sulwath Brewery

Beside Castle Douglas is Carlingwark Loch, dotted with islands and great for bird watching, boating, learning to sail and picnicking. There is a caravan park and kids’ playground by the loch and at the far end of the loch is National Trust for Scotland’s Threave Garden, House and Estate open to visitors all year.
