Castle Douglas


Events and
What's On



Castle Douglas is a thriving market town nestling between the Galloway hills, forests to the north and the sweeping beaches of the Solway Firth to the south. The historic market town of Castle Douglas has always been at the heart of local agricultural and commercial life. Today the town continues to flourish.

Livestock markets are still held every week, attracting discerning buyers and breeders from around the world, while the town’s unique mix of businesses attracts shoppers and visitors time and again. But it’s not only our focus on food that will be to your taste.

When it comes to speciality shopping, Castle Douglas has quite a list, view the members directory in the left hand navigation for details. Gardens in Castle Douglas can enjoy beautiful scenery and rural tranquillity. Picturesque Carlingwark Loch at the foot of the town is the perfect place to enjoy a picnic, freshly picked at local delis and sandwich shops.

Threave House and Gardens, owned by the National Trust for Scotland, is a peaceful haven where you can witness what life was like in a bygone era and walk in the magnificent grounds. Historic Threave Castle, marooned in the middle of a small loch and only reached by a brief crossing by boat, is shrouded in history, mystery and a magic all its own. Castle Douglas offers the best of both worlds.
