Galloway Tour

Where We Are >> Galloway Tour (outline)

Note: many of the tour pages are UNFINISHED / under construction.

All this in one region!

Including Scotland's two big Roberts (Bruce & Burns).

  1. Galloway Hills

Wild and untravelled, full of rewards for even the most seasoned hill-walker.

  1. Lochs And Rivers

Among the most picturesque in Scotland, and fishable too.

  1. Solway Coast

Perhaps the most richly varied coastline in Britain.

  1. Unique Towns

No "clone towns" here! Food, art, books - each has its own special focus.

  1. Lush Pastures

Lush rolling grassland, teeming with cattle and sheep.

  1. Varied Woodlands

The sheer diversity is staggering.

  1. Naturalist Country

Notably birds (several RSPB reserves), and some other particular attractions that get naturalists excited ...

  1. The Debris Of History

Trails of early kings, grim lords, pirates and smugglers; castles, abbeys, stately homes, Scotland's first Christian mission outpost (with unique archaeological dig) ... it's all here.

  1. Art And Design

With its thriving visual arts scene, Galloway is home to a growing number of artists and, notably, craft/design practicioners of national stature.

  1. Robert The Bruce

Scotland's hero-king begins his struggle for independence and the crown, right here. Scenes of high drama ...

  1. Robert Burns

Yes, Scotland's bard lived and wrote around here. Many local references to trace.
