More about Dalbeattie's VIP (Visitor Information Point)

About us

Dalbeattie Visitor Information Point provides information and inspiring things to see and do in Dalbeattie and the surrounding area.  It also provides information about buses, local events, and activities, cycle trails and walking routes.

The Visitor Information Point is co-ordinated by a paid member of staff but could not run successfully without a group of wonderful volunteers who give freely of their time to make everyone feel welcome to our beautiful town. (see below for more about volunteering)

Local Crafters

We sell arts and craft products produced by local people, ceramic animals, teddy bears, woodwork, knitting, cards, pictures and jewellery which all make great gifts or souveniers for family and friends.

Artists and crafters from the Dalbeattie area who wish to display and sell their work in the VIP should pop in for a chat or email the VIP manager Jenni Kingan
at  dalbeattievip@gmail.com .


In 2007 a group of local volunteers felt that the town needed a place for information for our many tourists and set up their own information point within Dalbeattie Community Initiative office and staffed it with volunteers.


More volunteers are always welcome to help at the Visitor Information Centre, so if you have some knowledge of Dalbeattie and the surrounding area and enjoy working directly with the public, maybe you would like to volunteer to help this year or even next year. 

If so, drop in to the VIP or to Dalbeattie Initiative Office for further information.
