Centred between Northern Ireland, Glasgow, Carlisle, Blackpool, and Isle of Man, this is the only facility for General Aviation in the South West of Scotland.

All General Aviation aircraft are welcome within the rules of the airfield. The airfield is unlicensed, and used at the pilots own risk and discretion. The airfield is strictly PPR, due to agricultural, and other activities.

The airfield is the location of the first recorded fixed wing arrival in Galloway in 1913, and has had a varied history.
