Crocketford in Dumfries and Galloway enjoys the milder micro-climate of this part of southern Scotland. The picturesque village is located just 9 miles from Dumfries, and can easily be reached on the A75 road.
Most visitors come across Crocketford more by accident than by design – it lies en route from Dumfries to Castle Douglas, a popular tourist attraction in this part of Scotland. Boasting a shop and a Post Office, Crocketford is also home to the Galloway Arms Hotel and an antiques shop, where tourists can browse for unusual presents to take home as a reminder of their time in Dumfries.
For locals, there is the village hall where various entertainments provide much needed distractions throughout the year. The village itself sprung up at the point where drivers used to meet, when they drove their cattle, sheep and pigs to and from places such as Girvan and Ayr or Portpatrick. Such cattle tracks were also used by smugglers on the run from excise officers.
You are unlikely to be knocked off your feet by a smuggler on horse-back when you’re out walking in the hills surrounding Crocketford today; however, if a careless rider’s horse did trample you underfoot, you could claim compensation – unlike the smugglers on the run from Robbie Burns and his men.
