The local village of Dundrennan is 6 miles away and is most notable for its ruins of Dundrennan Abbey, a 12th-century monastery. Here you'll also find a shop for your convenience. Just 10 miles away from Rascarrel lies Castle Douglas, a lovely town well-known for its excellent eateries, local markets and fresh produce. It is also home to a broad selection of independent shops. Carlingwark Loch, dotted with small islands, is situated beside Castle Douglas and provides a great opportunity for romantic picnics, or even boating. At the far end of the loch sits the National Trust property Threave Garden and Estate which boasts picturesque grounds that are delightful to walk through all year round.

Further afield from Rascarrel, situated about 27 miles away, lies Galloway Forest Park. This incredible location offers serene lochs and miles of forested glens, as well as some of the highest hills in southern Scotland. However, the most impressive part is that this Forest Park is the first in the UK to be honoured with a Dark Sky Park status, meaning that the view of the stars is truly spectacular and well worth a visit.
