The Open Gate Campsite


Over the hills and far away sits a picturesque farm steading overlooking the Nith valley, far enough off the beaten track to offer adventurers of all types a place to rest their heads and ready themselves for the next day.


Here at the Open Gate Campsite we know that at the end of the day there's nothing better than getting a warm shower, drying off your kit, and having somewhere to chill out and plan your next days adventures.

No matter how muddy, how late, or how you turn up, our gate is always open for those looking for a place to stay. We offer something for everyone whatever your budget, group size or expectations. We're here to help; and our relaxed and friendly attitude means the adventure doesn't stop when you leave the trails.

It wouldn't really be camping without a campfire and a BBQ, so we happily encourage both! There's a communal fire pit in the centre of the farm, or individual fire pits are available for a more personal touch.

If your looking for something special, or if you can't find what you're looking for please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Unfortunately due to the nature of our farm we can't say we are a suitable location for children or dogs at this moment in time.

The Open Gate Campsite is based on a small traditional farm steading in the beautiful Nith valley. The farm is home to a small flock of very friendly sheep who work very hard to keep the grass mown for our campers!
