About the Town of Dalbeattie, Kippford, Rockcliffe and Sandyhills
A town of solid houses built of grey granite, a stone for which Dalbeattie became famous and prosperous in the 19th Century. It was shipped in bulk to Liverpool for export, though today its quarry only produces granite chips for roads. The town has a pleasant park and boating lake, whilst on the outskirts is a Golf Course and Dalbeattie Forest with waymarked walks.
To the west are the sparse ruins of Buittle Castle where John Balliol’s mother, Devorguilla, signed the charter of Oxford’s Balliol College in 1282.
Dalbeattie is an ideal town base for exploring the Colvend Coast (also known as 'The Scottish Riviera') and the areas of:

A holiday area favoured by the Victorians, with yachts in summer, walks along the Jubilee Path and Muckle Lands, a 5th Century Mote of Mark Hill Fort, and Rough Island bird sanctuary.
