Location description from owner

The Scotland region

Dumfries and Galloway is one of the most sparsely populated regions of Scotland and, although easily accessible from both England and the Central Belt, remains much of an undiscovered gem with tourists.
The area is rich in history, with a number of ruined abbeys and castles to explore, as well as some notable prehistoric remains. Much of the Solway coast is designated a National Scenic Area, with some lovely sandy beaches, hidden coves and stunning clifftop walks, and is a significant over-wintering area for several species of wild geese, with ospreys nesting in the neighbourhood. The nearby Galloway Hills offer great walking opportunities, and the area is now designated a Dark Sky Park - ideal for romanitic star-gazing!

The Galloway Hills offer some challenging walking, with the Forest Park being recognised as a Dark Sky Park, with unrivalled opportunities to stargaze. Wildlife in the area includes red squirrels, red and roe dear, red kites and ospreys.

Garlieston

Garlieston is perhaps best known as the birthplace of the 2nd World War Mulberry Harbour, traces of which can still be seen when walking along the coast to nearby Rigg Bay. The surrounding area is quiet and unspoilt, with some lovely countryside, secluded bays and rugged cliffs. Places of interest include nearby Whithorn Priory - the oldest Christian settlement in Scotland and ancient pilgrimage site - and Barsalloch Iron Age fort, overlooking Luce Bay. View the area's nesting osprey's from Wigtown County Buildings. Cream o'Galloway ice cream centre, near Gatehouse of Fleet, offers a children's farm and adventure playground. There are a number of stunning gardens in the area, including the RHS Botanic Gardens near Port Logan.

Be sure to visit the Mull of Galloway (most southerly point in Scotland, with stunning views to Ireland & Cumbria) and sample the local tipple at Bladnoch distillery.
Nearby Wigtown is Scotland's National Booktown and hosts a thriving literary festival every Autumn, with other smaller events during the year. Newton Stewart hosts an annual walking festival in May.
