There are many places to fish but I shall only detail the Urr as it is the nearest…the season is from 25 February to 30 November, salmon, sea and brown trout. Bank fishing, spinning, fly and worm. No Sunday fishing. A permit can be obtained from McCowan & Son 01556 610270 in Castle Douglas. They also have info on all local fishing.
Redcastle is part of the Visit Scotland welcome cyclist scheme and is central to the 7 Stanes rides. www.7stanes.gov. The nearest cycle shop and hire is in Dalbeattie.
If you are planning a motoring holiday in the beautiful region of South West Scotland or just just spending some time away with a few friends and fancy doing something really special then consider hiring one of the lovely old cars listed here. We have tried to cater for everyones tastes.
the nearest one is at Rockcliffe 7 miles away..mainly shells.if you want sand then go to Sandyhills about 3 miles further along the coast.
