Dalbeattie is a town in Dumfries and Galloway situated in a wooded valley on the Urr Water five miles east of Castle Douglas. Granite quarrying in and around the town gave it a period of prosperity in the 1870s, and many of the fine granite buildings in the town date from this period. The quarry still exists today. Dalbeattie granite was used to build parts of Windsor Castle. The town originally started as a coastal port making use of the natural basin where the Dalbeattie Burn enters the River Urr. If you are in the right town but cannot find the accommodation you want on this page, you might consider bed and breakfast in Dalbeattie or self catering accommodation in Dalbeattie.
