New Galloway stands in an enviable position on the fringes of Galloway Forest Park and Loch Ken. As such it is a haven for all outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers who can enjoy the breath-taking views across the water and endless woodland paths, as well as being a superb spot for golf, fishing and water sports. Birdwatchers flock to Loch Ken to take a trip down the Galloway Red Kite Trail to enjoy seeing the birds who were recently re-introduced into the area, and walkers can also survey the ruins of the once imposing Kenmure Castle.
Originally constructed in the Middle Ages, the castle underwent several renovations after being ravaged by fire on more than one occasion and it had many uses throughout its history until it eventually fell into a state of permanent disrepair at the end of the 1950s, and local legend has it that it is now haunted by a headless pipe player. For those who prefer more alternative outdoor pursuits, New Galloway’s neighbouring village of Parton hosts the annual Scottish Alternative Games, which includes quirky contests such as tractor towing.
