Ringford is 5 miles inland from the attractive harbour town of Kirkcudbright, more commonly referred to as the "artist town" which has produced three of Scotland's most well known Painters, E.A Hornell, Jessie M King and Charles Oppenheimer. Unsurprisingly the town has many very good art galleries as well as a great choice of restaurants and a picturesque 18 hole golf course with views over the harbour. During the summer months you can enjoy such events as the Tattoo and Jazz Festival. 6 miles west is the market town of Castle Douglas, which has some excellent individual shops, a good choice of amenities, and worthwhile visitor attractions. The town of Dumfries is some 24 miles west, where a large range of social and leisure activities can be found.

The area has some on the most spectacular selection of coastal walks, and sandy beaches. For sailing enthusiasts The Galloway Sailing Centre is a worthwhile visit offering tuition in sailing, windsurfing and canoeing on the pictureseque setting of Loch Ken. The area also offers some of the best cycling and mountain bike routes in Scotland, including the acclaimed 7stanes tracks which offer world class cycling for all abilities.
