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.

The Tax office always write to you.

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?
