Dumfries and Galloway

©2020 Gazetteer for Scotland


Also known as Scaur, the village of Kippford lies at the mouth of the Urr Water on the Solway coast of Dumfries and Galloway, 5 miles (8 km) south of Dalbeattie. Now a resort village and yachting centre, it was once a centre of shipbuilding and granite quarrying. Kippford has a Village Hall (1995), a Life-Boat Station (1966) but no church, school or post office (the latter closing in 2002).

A Millennium Monument was unveiled opposite the Solway Yacht Club in 2000.
