The area lies within the Ministry of Defence Test and Evaluation Establishment near Dundrennan, a strip of coastline which has been '''used as a firing range for many years. '''Recently announced plans (1994) indicate that its future is uncertain. The MOD has no objection to people visiting the area, except '''when firing is in progress! '''At such times '''red flags and explanatory notices are displayed. '''Notification of firing times is held by the Harbour Master and Tourist Information Office in Kirkcudbright. Access on foot is feasible without special permission when the range is not in use, normally evenings, weekends and public holidays, although it is always best to inform the range authorities in advance. Large parties, or visitors wishing to take vehicles into the range area, should contact the Commanding Officer beforehand (Test and Evaluation Establishment, Dundrennan, Kirkcudbright DG6 4QZ). '''Do not touch '''any strange objects encountered during the excursion.
