Southerness, Dumfries and Galloway

Southerness is a small coastal village in the Dumfries and Galloway. Southerness is located approximately 3 km south of the A710 between Caulkerbush and Kirkbean. The town today is mainly a tourist village and has for many years had a large number of static caravans, some private and many rented to holiday makers. The local bus services to and from Dalbeatie and Dumfries also reflect in their timetables the differences between summer and the off seasons with a vastly reduced service.
