Dalbeattie Town was founded 1793 initially as a Mill Town, with Port and a Granite Quarry. The Town's wealth was historically based on granite quarrying with the local stone being particularly hard and used in many world wide landmark locations including Liverpool Docks.   Dalbeattie loosely means " Vale of Birches" and much of the natural local birch forest was felled in the Town's early years providing hardwood for the Bobbin Mills of the 19th Century for the spinning and weaving industries of the industrial North of England.

Today, Dalbeattie is a thriving dormitory Town serving Dumfries, and a shopping and service centre for the coastal villages of Kippford and Rockcliffe. Tourism and Agriculture are the main economic forces.  With the famous 18 mile "Hardrock Trail", part of the new 7 stanes mountain bike centres to open, tourism and adventure holidays look set to thrive.

Our offices are right at the beating heart of Dalbeattie, right in the middle of the high street.
