Turn right out of the cottage and follow the road towards Port O’Warren.

After a few hundred yards take the path on the right and follow the coastal path which leads west to the coastal village of Rockcliffe.

There you can stop for some tea at the Garden Room Teashop or you can carry on, using the Jubilee Path , round to the sailing centre of Kippford where you can get refreshments or a hearty meal at the Anchor Hotel (dogs welcome).
