From the East, take the A75 from Dumfries. Head towards Gatehouse-of-Fleet. 5.5 miles after Gatehouse you will see a brown signpost for CairnHoly Chambered Cairns.
For KIRKDALE WEST WING, take the turning for CairnHoly Chambered Cairns, then the first driveway on your immediate left (with white gates) which will take you up to Kirkdale House. Kirkdale West Wing is the farthest wing.
For KIRKDALE BANK and KIRKDALE PORT holiday cottages, take the first turning on your left 50 yards after the brown CairnHoly sign. Kirkdale Bank is the first house you come to and Kirkdale Port is at the very end of the track. The track to Port can be steep and narrow but is perfectly accessible for normal family cars.
From the West, we are 4 miles east of Creetown along the A75.
For KIRKDALE HOUSE AND WEST WING, take the CairnHoly brown tourist sign to the left. Then follow the first driveway on your left.
From the west, take the A75 from Newton Stewart. Head towards Creetown. 5 miles after Creetown for KIRKDALE BANK AND KIRKDALE PORT holiday cottages, turn right down the small track which is BETWEEN the two brown CairnHoly Chambered Cairn signs. As above, Kirkdale Bank is the first cottage you come to and Kirkdale Port is at the end of the track.
The track to Kirkdale Port cottage can be steep and narrow but is perfectly accessible for normal family cars.
