Welcome to Solway View

A family run campsite in South West Scotland. Solway View Campsite opened in 2007. We brought together our best camping memories and our beautiful location to make Solway View. We hope you will stay and make happy memories too. 

Solway View is located within Balmangan Farm, a 330 acre beef and sheep farm beside the sea. Feel free to go paddling, swimming, fishing or simply enjoy the tranquillity of the little secluded bay just a short walk from the site. We are a short car drive from two lovely bathing beaches, Brighouse Bay & Dhoon Bay.
