Galloway enjoys some of Britain's most stunning scenery, yet is often described as Scotland's forgotten corner. That's why, if you're looking for a tranquil holiday away from the crowds, a place where you and your family can enjoy beautiful coast and inland views, this is the place for you!
With dramatic unspoilt landscapes, beautiful coastlines, lochs and hills, a wide range of attractions and activities to all visitors. From bird watching, walking, cycling or generally just relaxing, this area has something for everyone.
The Galloway Forest is loved by ramblers and mountain bikers alike. Here, you will find the world-class 7Stanes Biking Trails, the best outside North America. But for those seeking solitude or simply wanting to admire the stunning views, the Forest offers a chance to get far away from the stresses and strains of modern living. There are many great walking trails and the Galloway Forest Park is also Britain's first Dark Skies Parks where, on a clear night, you can enjoy the night sky without light pollution.
Just 10 minutes' drive away is the former county town of Wigtown, Scotland's National Book Town. With a range of book shops, you're bound to find something of interest to read here. Wigtown also boasts Britain's largest local nature reserve with many species of birds to view from the bird hide and an osprey visitor centre in the magnificent and imposing County Buildings.
