catering accommodation and also some choice camping and caravan pitches.

Above the village is the Kirkmaiden Kirk and Old Cemetery. The kirk dates from about 1863. The burial ground contains some interesting graves, including those of mariners killed by a U-Boat in WWI. This cemetery also featured in the opening episode of ‘2000 Acres of Sky’ – a BBC TV drama production. There is also the tranquil beauty of Medan’s Chapel and Cave at Kirkmaiden, south of Drummore, which has a number of legends attached to it.

Where can I get a Coffee?

Check out the Mariner`s Coffee Shop in Mill Street, Drummore or head down to Gallie Crag at the Mull of Galloway

Mull of Galloway

South of Drummore stand the rugged 300 foot high cliffs of the Mull of Galloway, with views of, as local lore has it “5 Kingdoms” namely, the Isle of Man, England, Scotland, Ireland and Heaven!  There is an award winning tea-room, car parking, plenty of birdlife monitored by the RSPB, nest-cams and a whole lot more.

See our Mull of Galloway page for more details about this unique place.

Drummore is on the Mull of Galloway Trail and makes an ideal base to tackle the superb final section of the walk to the Mull of Galloway itself or, for a shorter and more level option to the lovely beach at Maryport.
