Almost a quarter of the county is taken up by Galloway Forest Park so between that and the miles of beautiful coastline on the Solway Firth, outdoor pursuits are favoured and very varied. There are no motorways and no cities, but there are plenty of wide open spaces, lovely towns and villages, a warm welcome and a relaxing pace of life where you can enjoy walking, cycling, watersports, horseriding, golf and a good selection of family attractions. The area is also great for fans of wildlife with excellent opportunities to see many species in their own habitat and for birdwatchers it is home to many rare birds such as Red Kites
The county town of Kirkcudbright has always had a busy fishing trade whilst the area behind the harbour has housed generations of creative artists and continues to do so – hence Kirkcudbright has become know as “The Artists’ Town”. A summer art exhibition is held in the town every July and August. The marina is also a popular anchorage point for visiting sailors and is a pleasant spectacle in the harbour area. The town overall has a welcoming feel with its wide clean streets, pastel coloured buildings, mixed in with traditional sandstone buildings, all overlooked by the splendid historic MacLennan’s Castle. Kirkcudbright is also home to a lovely selection of interesting and independent shops as well as cafes, restaurants and hotels.
Attractions in the area include Cream o’Galloway, producers of a fabulous range of speciality ice creams combined with indoor and outdoor adventure play areas including tunnels and warrens, walking and cycle nature trails. The CocoBean company, makes wonderful chocolates and hosts family workshops where you can make and eat your own. The Galloway Activity Centre at Loch Ken, where you can take part in a wide range of watersports and outdoor activities, with professional tutors to provide days out tailored to your specific needs.
With spacious family caravans, luxury lodges and cosy cottages and different types of parks and locations to choose from, we’re sure you’ll be spoilt for choice.
