Dalbeattie is the largest town in the Stewartry of Kirkcudbright

The largest town in the Stewartry District of Dumfries and Galloway, Dalbeattie has a population of around 4,000. 


Historically, the town was once a busy port mainly serving the local quarries whose high quality granite was exported worldwide. In recent years, quarrying work has largely come to an end and most local industry now centres around forestry, agriculture and tourism. 


Dalbeattie, still known as ‘The Granite Town’, now boasts one of the largest sawmills in Scotland. 


Close by lies the Colvend Coast (known to some as the Solway Riviera), with picturesque villages such as Kippford and Rockcliffe, well served by a number of caravan and holiday parks, as well as independent hotels and self-catering establishments. 


As the Gateway to the Solway Coast, Dalbeattie is a popular tourist destination especially for visitors from the North of England and other parts of Scotland.
