Convenience for you at Orroland
We’d like to share how you can get your hands on some fantastic local produce from our nearby food producers who deliver to Orroland and also contacts for our recommended local caterers.
Dumfries and Galloway has some of the best producers of fine foods in Scotland. Many producers have their own websites and it is easier than ever to search, order and buy online directly from the farmer or grower and have it delivered to Orroland ready for your arrival.
If you do not wish to cook every night, we have excellent catering partners that use local produce wherever possible and offer a delicious, professional and reliable service. One of these is Evie Watson, a professional cook who does a lot of our catering for us if we have a party. Evie is a seriously good cook; you can phone her on 07900 065690. Also great options are local partners Cartner Catering and Caterbirds, both of which offer a full catering service for dinner parties and weddings at Orroland and know the setup at Orroland well. Hullabaloo To You, based in Dumfries has also catered several events at Orroland.
Ready Meals - cooked to order
Another great service from Caterbirds; home-made meals for you to enjoy fresh or to freeze for later in the week. All you have to do is heat it up. Reduce the shopping, cooking and washing up so you can spend your time enjoying your holiday. Fresh cooked starters, main courses, puddings using seasonal ingredients, locally sourced where possible, to create a bespoke menu to suit your taste and budget. Book well in advance if possible to ensure availability.
Fresh veg and local produce from our village store
Alison at the village store in Auchencairn can source local produce such as milk, eggs, cheese and vegetables ready for collection if you knew what you would like. If you'd like to pre-order please call her on 01556 640 385. A veg box can be arranged and delivered from local small holders at Standingstone Hill farm, please call James on 07909 923811 to arrange this and he will be happy to help if he can.
From the deli in Castle Douglas you can order a hamper to be made up and delivered. You can get a treaty hamper for £25+. Phone them to discuss the kind of foods you would like to include and they’ll help you create your ideal boxed hamper. Payment will be by bank transfer. Make sure they know you’re staying at Orroland and also email us so we can make arrangements to collect the hamper from the deli for you and place it in the cottage ready for your arrival. King Street Deli, 173 King Street, Castle Douglas. 01556 504 880.
Our local award winning butchers, T H Carson, supply a really good range of traceable meats from local farms, as well as cooked meats and pies. Based in Dalbeattie, they deliver out our way most days so delivery options are flexible, including Saturdays. Free delivery. How it works: you phone them to discuss your requirements and place your order. They bag it up and phone you back with the cost and to take payment over the phone. The items are delivered on the agreed day. We are happy to take delivery of the order ready for your arrival, by arrangement – just let us know so we can ensure we are available to do so.
If you want a daily newspaper you can order newspapers in advance from Auchencairn Village Store (Closed on Sundays but you should find it open between 7.30am-1pm and 3-4.30pm Monday -Saturday). Alison is happy to pre-order you other basic provisions which she can box up ready for you to collect on the way through the village to Orroland. Note that the papers are held for you at the village shop, rather than being delivered to your door. Contact Alison to arrange on 01556 640385.
