Lovely views, quiet and peaceful. Great to see what birds are on the water, curlews are frequently seen. Good walking shoes are a must and in winter be sure to wrap up warm.

We visited Kippford on a wet and rainy day. Although it stopped us from exploring the harbour, we enjoyed having a bite to eat overlooking the water and enjoying our time there.

We walked here from Rockcliffe which I recommend - it’s an easy walk with great views and there’s parking available. The beach was lovely; not sandy but covered in creamy white sea shells.

We try to get here at least annually. Never changes. Beautiful village with accompanying hugely inflated house prices! (It appears that every house, on the shore line anyway, is a holiday let). Good walks along the shore. Fascinating to watch the rapidly changing tides and...More

my favourite place on earth , if you want peace and no people, the pubs in Kippford need to get their acts together , so much potential with the caravan/lodge parks
