Craig Roan is a spacious bright two bedroomed apartment in the pretty seaside village of Rockcliffe in Dumfries and Galloway. This three star Scottish Tourist Board rated self catering accommodation is attached to our home which is also run as a B&B. Situated at the rear of our property giving guests complete privacy and their own garden. A short walk takes you to the beach and bay.

Rockcliffe is an ideal holiday destination for guests wanting to get away from it all. Excellent cliff and forest walks from our doorstep, quiet roads to tour the area and to see all Dumfries and Galloway has to offer. From Castles to National Trust Properties and Gardens, pretty beaches and unspoilt countryside. The RSPB reserve at Merse Head is a short drive away and the Red Kite Feeding Staion and Threave Ospreys close by. Dalbeattie 7 stanes Mountain Biking Trail is also close by. We offer a bike lock up and drying room.

Rockcliffe and the surrounding area have a mild climate due to the influence of the Gulf Stream. The area became known as the Scottish Riviera in Victorian times and has been a well kept secret holiday destination since then. The land between Rockcliffe and Kippford is owned and managed by the National Trust for Scotland so there are some lovely walks between the two villages. Kippford is a busy yachting village well known for its sailing regatta and here are two pubs serving local Ales and a lovely gift shop.

We offer short breaks all year round with a flexible start date. Three nights minimum.

The accommodation is accessed through the conservatory/lounge with flat screen Freeview Digital TV. French doors lead through to the open plan kitchen diner with large pine table and dresser. The compact kitchen is adequate for holiday meal preparation and comprises an electric oven with halogen hob, microwave and small dishwasher. Fridge with ice compartment.

The two bedrooms lead off the dining area. The double room is a bright sunny room with large pine bed and wardrobe. Twin bedroom has built in wardrobes and overlooks the garden.

Large shower room with white suite.

The Dumfries and Galloway region

Dumfries and Galloway is an unspoilt little known region of Scotland and offers visitors lots to see and do. Close to the border the area is closer than you think. The Colvend Coast has a mild climate and is also known as the Scottish Riviera. Pretty villages and secret bays and beaches are yours to discover. There are lots of Gardens to visit, National Trust Properties and Historic Scotland Castles.

The RSPB at Merse Head is known for the large population of visiting Barnacle Geese and The Red Kite Feeding Station at Laurieston is a great day out. With small lanes and very little traffic exploring the region is a real pleasure and its beauty delights visitors.

The town of Kirkcudbright has been popular with artists for many years and is the home to many galleries and visiting exhibitions. Castle Douglas is known as the Food Town and hosts Food Day with many local producers selling their produce.

The 7Stanes mountain biking trails are all easily accessible and becoming more popular. Dalbeattie and Mabie are close by to our accommodation.


The Colvend Coast really is a hidden Gem. Rockliffe and neighbouring Kippford was discovered by the Victorians and the villages became holiday destinations and known as the Scottish Riviera. Our mild climate is attributed to the Gulf Stream which warms our shores. Rockcliffe has a pretty rocky beach for rock pooling and swimming and most of the land surrounding the village is owned and managed by the National Trust for Scotland.
