Kippford is the perfect destination for a relaxing break as it is just over an hour’s drive from the M6 motorway at Carlisle.
If you are travelling to Kippford from the north of England, take the A75 from the M6/M74 junction at Gretna and take direction Dumfries.
From Dumfries, follow directions for the A711 to Dalbeattie, turning south just outside the town along the A711 to Kippford.
After five miles, take the turning for Kippford (you’ll see the Barnbarroch Pottery on the corner) and into the village. The Mariner Hotel sits near the Yacht Club pier beside the village hall and Kippford Cross.
Parking is in the grounds of The Mariner.
If you are travelling from Glasgow and the north, head down the M74 and turn off at Junction 15 (Beattock / Moffat) and head for Kippford following the same instructions from Dumfries as above.
