What’s on West Dumfries and Galloway

In this uncrowded and varied landscape, you’ll find many appealing towns and villages to visit. Famous for its salmon and trout fishing, Newton Stewart, on the banks of the River Cree, is the largest town. Within easy reach of the Galloway Forest Park, it’s popular with hikers and cyclists. To the south lies Wigtown, which hosts a national book festival every September. Two contrasting towns lie on the western Rhinns of Galloway peninsula: Stranraer, a main point of entry to Scotland for visitors from Northern Ireland, and the beguiling seaside resort of Portpatrick.
