The Urr Water
The Urr Water is a meandering tidal river that links Kirkennan with the Solway Coast. It forms the eastern boundary of the Estate.
Guests can enjoy the Urr as it bounds one side of Jock's wood. There is a bench overlooking the Urr which is a lovely place to sit and look for otters. There is also a wooden hut made from recycled materials from the Estate where guests can sit and watch the water life and tide. A great way to relax!
The Urr used to be navigable right up to Dalbeattie and quite large boats still use the harbour in Palnackie. At high tide it is possible to launch a kayak from Kirkennan and paddle up or down stream.
