Situated within the Galloway Forest Park and Dark Sky Park, this is the perfect base for those who want to experience the best of South West Scotland's stunning scenery and wildlife.
If you're looking to get away from it all or simply to enjoy nature at its best, then this is where you want to be, with three hundred square miles of Galloway Forest Park just waiting to be explored.

Those with plenty of stamina to spare could have a go at walking the Southern Upland Way. Glentrool Camping and Caravan Site is also situated within half a mile of the route, so makes the ideal stopping-off point.
