What’s on in Galloway Heartland

Kirkcudbright (pronounced kir-coo-bree), with its rich artistic heritage, is the main resort here, with the beautiful Colvend coast stretching to the east. On the Urr estuary lies the lively yachting centre of Kippford, linked by the Rough Firth causeway to Rough Island - a 20-acre bird sanctuary owned by the National Trust for Scotland. In the Galloway Hills, you’ll find the 150,000-acre Galloway Forest Park, along with formal gardens and other country parks. Loch Ken, running between New Galloway and Castle Douglas, is a haven for water-sports fans, anglers and birdwatchers.
