Additional Information
Gatehouse of Fleet is a charming Georgian town, widely admired for its historic buildings. It owes its development in the 18th century to the entrepreneur James Murray of Broughton whose mansion, Cally Palace, is now an acclaimed hotel. In Murray's day, Gatehouse became a thriving centre of the water powered cotton industry and in 1795 had four cotton mills, a brass foundry, a brewery, brickworks, tanneries and a substantial population. Today it is better known for the remarkable beauty of its setting.

Gatehouse of Fleet is within the Fleet Valley National Scenic Area and is surrounded by ancient woods, hills and forests. The mild southwest climate is reflected in the many exotic plants which grow in its gardens. There is sailing in both the Solway Firth and nearby lochs and the nearby Cardness Shoreline has one of the finest beaches in the south of Scotland. For lovers of sport, Gatehouse cricket club, football club, bowling club, tennis club and one of Scotland's most unique golf courses are all on offer. The challenging nine hole Gatehouse of Fleet course is in excellent order and much admired.

Within Gatehouse of Fleet there is a primary school which feeds into Kirkcudbright Academy. There are four churches, several cafés as well as good local shops, a medical surgery, a chemist and a variety of other professional services, as well as good bus links to Dumfries and Stranraer. Kirkcudbright lies approximately 9 miles from Gatehouse and offers additional shopping, transport and professional services. For further information .

Gatehouse of Fleet is also famous for its varied wildlife with the Red Kite Trail within close proximity. The nearby Galloway Forest Park extends to approximately 300 square miles and has an outstanding variety of wildlife including red squirrels, fallow deer and a variety of birds of prey. In 2009 the International Dark Sky Association confirmed dark sky status on the Galloway Forest Park, the first area in Scotland to be so designated. The gardens of Brownhill enjoy wonderful bird life and red squirrels are frequent visitors.
