Map & Directions
So easy to get here, so hard to leave...

By Bus:

There is a bus service between Rockcliffe, Sandyhills, Dumfries and Dalbeattie; the turn around for the buses is a short walk from the house.

By Train:

The nearest station is Dumfries, but there are also fast connections from Edinburgh, London and Glasgow at Lockerbie and at Carlisle. Dumfries is 30 minutes drive from Rockcliffe, whilst Lockerbie is 45 minutes drive and Carlisle one hour.

By Taxi:

We recommend to use Dowdens local taxi service in Dalbeattie (tel: +44 1556 611 098). If you book ahead in advance, they can usually manage transfers to/from the nearest airports and rail stations.

By Car:

Mossdale is located in the heart of Rockcliffe village on the road towards the forest, 50 metres after the beach on the left hand side of the road. A direction map may be found here. Rockcliffe lies at the end of a country lane sign posted in Colvend to turn off from the A710 between Dalbeattie and Sandyhills. Mossdale has no garage and there is no on street parking directly outside the house. Parking is available at the end of the road. Please use the Google Map above for directions and the Google Earth street view facility for a visual image of the immediate environment.

By Air:

Airports at Prestwick (Ayr), Glasgow, Edinburgh and Newcastle are all about 2 and a half hours’ drive from the house. Manchester Airport is also manageable, but is 3 and a half hours’ drive from the house.

By Ferry:

There are good daily ferry links between Eire and Stranraer, and for visitors travelling to or from Europe, P&O Ferries operate a daily service between Zeebrugge and Hull.
