| Events in Kirkbean | 10 Places to Stay

Kirkbean is an enchanting village with delightful country lanes just a stones throw from the Solway Coast, in Dumfries and Galloway in South West Scotland. The founder of the US Navy John Paul Jones lived nearby and his small cottage has captivating exhibits on display, walkers are spoilt with beautiful countryside, breath stealing coastline, or for the determined there is Criffel Mountain. There's spectacular wildlife at RSPB Mersehead, or maybe Caerlaverock Nature Reserve will please with hundreds of Barnacle Geese. If the thought of wandering around a Museum is tempting there's the Museum of Costume at Shambellie House, the Savings Bank Museum whose story is told with interest, or perhaps Robert Burns House will share the everlasting legacy of the author of Auld Lang Syne. For a link with the past the red sandstone ruins of 13th Century Sweatheart Abbey reverses time instantly, or maybe New Abbey working Corn Mill will be first choice, as it unravels secrets long since past. Or possibly the bewitching beauty of Caerlaverock Castle where bloody battles were bravely fought by William Wallace will be hard to resist as the haunting reflection of this Medieval castle is seen in the Moat, there's woodland trails, and children's Playground ensuring memories of the everlasting kind.
