Solway View Wigwam Holidays in Dumfries & Galloway are a breath of fresh air and a fantastic way to enjoy the great outdoors year-round! Our Wigwams are like wooden tents with lots of home comforts included.

We have 5 of these glamping pods on site, sleeping up to 5 people. Our Wigwam camping pods are great for individuals, couples, friends or families.

They are cosy as they have heating and are very well insulated. We have named our Wigwams after some of the hills in Dumfries & Galloway: Screel, Criffel, Merrick, Cairnsmore & Bengairn… you can see Bengairn from the door!

Solway View Wigwams have raised bed platforms with very comfortable mattresses provided. All you need to remember is to bring your sleeping bags or sheets/quilt and pillows.

Pets/Dogs are welcome in the Wigwams. Max 2 pets per wigwam. Please bring own pet basket/bed.

We are happy to welcome well-behaved dogs onto our campsite in Dumfries & Galloway. There are paths along the coast which are great for longer dog walks. We also have an allocated dog-friendly play area on the campsite where your dog can have a good run around. This is fully enclosed and allows the dog to be off lead. All of the beaches around the area are dog-friendly and so are many of the cafes in Kirkcudbright.
