Our Community

The small villages of Pinwherry and Pinmore are situated 6 to 8 miles south of Girvan on the A714, surrounded by farmland in a beautiful part of the Stinchar Valley.

Pinwherry village grew up where the River Duisk flows into the River Stinchar and looks west along the valley to Knockdolian Hill. At one time there were railway stations in both Pinwherry and Pinmore on the line between Girvan and Stranraer.

There is an existing village hall, however Pinwherry and Pinmore are developing a new Community Centre which is more accessible for people and visitors.

The ruins of Pinwherry Castle stand within the grounds of Pinwherry House, and can be seen from the road when entering the village from Newton Stewart. It dates from around the end of the sixteenth century.

The area is a perfect spot for the outdoor enthusiast, with many walks nearby and good fishing on the Stinchar. There is a great variety of wildlife in the valley, including red squirrel, deer, otters and badgers.
