About Balmaghie

Balmaghie is a small civil parish that was the seat of the McGhee family. It is bordered by the River Dee to the north and east, with Threave Castle approximately 2 miles away. The area is popular with bird watchers, as the RSPB Nature Reserve at Duchrae: the Ken-Dee Marshes, is nearby. A number of Red Kite birds have been re-introduced to the area. Balmaghie was also the filming location for the 2008 horror film Outpost and its 2012 sequel Outpost:Black Sun. The Shadow of the Black Earl by Charles E McGarry, a 2018 mystery novel, is set in a fictionalised version of Laurieston Hall and surrounding area.
