Welcome to the Kippford Association

Kippford, Dumfries & Galloway

Promoting cultural and social activities in this Colvend Coast community

Welcome to the website of the Kippford Association, a registered charity that exists primarily to promote the benefits of living in Kippford and the surrounding area, looking after the interests of the residents and to manage the village hall, a key focal point for this close-knit community.

The Association also promotes local cultural and social activities within the village.

The picturesque village of Kippford nestles on the banks of the Urr Estuary on Dumfries and Galloway’s stunning Colvend Coast in south-west Scotland.

We are very lucky to have an active red squirrel population in D&G, and around Kippford.
If you ever spot grey suirrels in the region, please contact the Environmental Resource Centre (ERC) in Dumfries.  Tel: 01387 247543 or goto  scottishsquirrels.org.uk

It is vital that we keep the greys out of the region to protect the native red.

Seen in the media in November 2017 - John Gordon Sinclair, weel-kent Scottish actor and author and star of the classic 1980s film Gregory's Girl, names Kippford as one of the three places he loves to visit, over and above his home city of Glasgow.  Is this the first time that Kippford has been named alongside Paris and Rome?
