The Mill on the Fleet
The Mill on the Fleet was built in 1788 as a cotton spinning mill and restored as a visitor and exhibition centre by Dumfries and Galloway Council in the 1980s. It is also houses the Gatehouse Tourist Information Centre.
The Mill cafe kindly agreed to let us use their space to host 'Meal and Movie' nights, during Covid restrictions. This meant we could can all enjoy and healthy cooked meal and relax afterwards with a film, while maintaining social distancing and keeping everyone safe. We even had our own Bake off competition for the youths to take part in.
The Breakpad bike shop
The Break Pad Bike Shop at Kirroughtree Mountain Bike Trailhead is where we hire mountain bikes for our youth trips.
Galloway Community Transport
Started in 2001 as Glenkens Transport Initiative and re-named in 2019 as Galloway Community Transport, our charity has become an important part of the local community and is greatly valued by people living in an area with very limited public transport. We hire their buses for all trips and excursions.

Station House Cookery School is a unique experience in Dumfries and Galloway. Developed in the beautiful train station buildings in the picturesque fishing town of Kirkcudbright, Nick and the team offer a wide range of cookery classes for all ages and tastes delivered by passionate and knowledgeable tutors. We have had many fun and educational classes as a group learning new skills and recipies.
