Galloway is in the south west corner of Scotland and is the southernmost region of the country.
To the west is the Mull of Galloway peninsula, the closest point to Ireland in mainland UK. Known as the ‘forgotten corner of Scotland’, offering wonderful scenery, many local attractions and peaceful locations, Galloway is well worth a visit.
The surrounding sea is warmed several degrees from the Gulf Stream and attracts seals, otters and a great variety of sea birds (RSPB reserve with puffins, gannets, etc), and above all the warm, almost frost-free air allows spectacular gardens to flourish – Glenwhan, Castle Kennedy, and the Logan Botanic Gardens flourish with plants normally found in the sub tropics.
