Local events and attractions

Crossmichael and nearby Castle Douglas is right in the heart of Galloway and is a focul point for arts and craft events, musical festivals, sporting activities and of course a hotbed of history including castles and covenanters. 



See the Wickerman Festival, enjoy the Spring Fling, go canoeing, fishing, cycling and watch the red kites in action. Or better still visit Crossmichael's very own pop up Victorian tea room right inside the historic 260 year old church and take a tour round the graveyard where we can show you the final resting place of the 'real' Captain Hook. Other attractions include Threave Castle and gardens, the ruins of Kenmure Castle, the Chocolate Factory, the Galloway Ice Cream Centre or just simply visit one of the simply stunning beaches which are dotted around the Solway coastline.
