About the neighbourhood
The town of Newton Stewart is the gateway to the area and a handy base for further explorations in the hills.
The Galloway Hills take in 24 peaks above 2,000 ft and among them are ranges such as the Rhins of Kells, the Minnigaff Hills and the Dungeon Hills. The natural rock features of the The Grey Man and Devil's Bowling Green are worth looking out for.
