Castle Kennedy

Castle Kennedy Accommodation inc hotels, self catering holiday cottages and bed and breakfastsA village in the Rhins of Galloway in southwest Dumfries and Galloway, Castle Kennedy lies 4 miles (6 km) east of Stranraer to the south of the Black and White Lochs.

From 1861 Castle Kennedy developed in association with the Portpatrick Railway.

The village of Castle Kennedy takes its name from a castle built in 1607 by the 5th Earl of Cassilis. Fine landscaped policies, which incorporated the two lochs, were later laid out by the Earl of Stair and the castle was eventually destroyed during the 1715 Jacobite Rising.

The Southern Upland Way runs through Castle Kennedy which is an accommodation location for the route.
