Point of Interest
“Beautiful red sandstone ruined abbey. Lady Dervorgilla had the abbey built as a tribute to her beloved husband . When he died she had his heart embalmed and carried it with her until she died and was then laid to rest with him. Close to the scrumptious Sweetheart Abbey coffee and gift shop.”

“The Uk’s first Dark Sky Park. Entered an area of wonder & exploration. All around you are plants and animals that rely on the daytime sun. But at night, we enjoy a perfectly dark sky, studded with thousands of stars and the Milky Way stretching overhead from horizon to horizon. Here you can gaze and wonder at the magic of the night sky, just as your ancestors have done for thousands of years. Grab a pair of binoculars, some warm clothing and head out. You will discover wonders that few people get a chance to see these days. Light pollution in modern towns and cities has drowned out all but the brightest stars. But not here in the Dark Sky Park - a darkness that needs to be protected. Where to view the wonders of the night sky in Galloway Forest Park................ 1-Galloway Red Deer range 2-Clatteringshaws Visitor Centre 3-Glentrool Visitor Centre 4-Bruce’s stone 5-Caldons woodlands 6-Kirroughtree Visitor Centre 7-Loch Braden 8-Loch Doon south end 9-Talnotry 10-Raiders road west end ”
