Things to do around Craighlaw Arms Hotel

Angling
Fishing the rivers around Kirkcowan gives you a great opportunity to catch salmon and trout. There are two rivers which border the village, the river Tarff and the river Bladnoch. In August every year we host the annual fishing competition sponsored by Belhaven Brewery, it is always a great day enjoyed by the locals and visitors. Further away, just seven miles, the river Cree flows through Newton Stewart.

There are also some great lochs all within easy reach and the price of a permit varies.
Sea fishing is also  popular given that the area boasts some of the most beautiful unspoilt coastline.

Cycling
The galloway forest is well known for its miles and miles of great cycle tracks, some easy and some very challenging!  Situated not far from Glentrool and Kirroughtree, both areas are included in the 7Stanes route. There is probably no better way to see this  beautiful part of Scotland than by cycling whatever your standard of fitness and skill. Here at the Craighlaw Arms we welcome cyclists, we have a wash down point and stable where bikes can be stored securely. Wet clothing can also be dried.
