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.

You can find us on social media too:  FacebookTwitter and Instagram.

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.

There is a burst sewage pipe on the way in to the village, opposite the old telephone exchange. This has been reported to both Scottish Water (SW) and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA). SW are attending as a matter of extreme urgency but the repair will involve Scottish Power because the burst is adjacent to an electricity pole.

A generator and pump have been installed by Scottish Water to bypass the burst pipe.  This may be in place for several weeks until Scottish Power arrange to isolate the power lines above the damaged pipe.
