About the Town of New Galloway
New Galloway lies on the west side of the valley of the Water of Ken, 1 mile (2 kilometres) north of the end of Loch Ken. New Galloway is a rural town established by Viscount Kenmure in 1633. The fine granite bridge was built by Rennie. Now a holiday centre with golf, fishing and watersports in the vicinity, and also the RSPB Ken-Dee Nature Reserve. A popular holiday destination, New Galloway stands on the edge of the scenic Galloway Forest Park.
New Galloway from Castle Douglas or Newton Stewart
Follow the 17-mile scenic "Queen's Way" from Newton Stewart and you will arrive in New Galloway. Though the drive is lovely on its own, there are also plenty of stops to enjoy along the way.
From Castle Douglas, the A713 runs north through New Galloway and the outskirts of Galloway Forest Park is a noted Galloway Tourist Route - active people will find a great deal of enjoyment in this area. The Southern Upland Way passes through here and there are many other hill walks in rugged country which will appeal to serious walkers and those seeking easier strolls and picnics. Loch Ken has a wide range of outdoor sports available at the Galloway Sailing Centre including rowing boats, sailing dinghies and water skiing as well as fishing.
Galloway Forest Park
The Galloway Forest Park is Britain’s largest forest park. Established in 1947, the Galloway Forest Park is often referred to as ‘the Highlands of the Lowlands’. Home to dramatic ancient woodland, magnificent scenery and an astonishing range of local wildlife, the park is perfect for the whole family and for walking, cycling, fishing, driving through the woods or just relaxing in the tearooms.
