Kirkcowan – What's Going On?


to Kirkcowan’s community website

Starting originally as a printed newsletter, this website is being developed to provide up to date information & news about present-day Kirkcowan, a rural village in Dumfries & Galloway, southwest Scotland.
We aim to cover news, events & activities, clubs & groups, organisations & businesses, and anything else that might be useful or interesting to residents and visitors alike.

Run on a voluntary basis, we hope that this website will help people find & share current information quickly and easily, but please bear with us as we iron out any glitches.
The accuracy, quantity and relevance of information will depend on input from group organisers and the wider community.

Action Plan Survey

Kirkcowan Community Development Trust is working to establish a Community Action Plan to direct how the community benefit monies Kirkcowan receives from Kilgallicoh, RES and Airies Wind Farms can best be used. The value of the funds received is significant (approx. £210,000 per year) for the lifetime of the wind farms and therefore, significant developments are possible which makes it really important that as many people as possible take the time to answer this survey. The ideas have been submitted by people from Kirkcowan who have answered the Pilot survey or attended the drop-in meeting.

As we are aware that filling out this form will take a part of your time we have decided to enter anyone who has filled in the form (and who wishes to enter) into a prize draw of a £50 voucher from Amazon.

We would like to encourage every member of your household to complete the survey so, please encourage children and young people to give us their views.

One paper copy will be delivered to each household but if you would like more, please let us know.

If you need any help completing the survey or would like to discuss it further, please contact Katrina Dick at or on 07508 87995
