Visit New Galloway and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
New Galloway, Dumfries and Galloway, is the smallest of all Scottish royal burghs — a village set among delightful surroundings. Its Charter of 1633 was really a transference from nearby Dalry, which was at first intended as the new burgh, but Gordon of Kenmure wanted a burgh and market at his gates.
New Galloway stands high above the North end of Loch Ken and just North of Kenmure Castle, formerly the seat of the Gordons of Lochinvar. Though much altered, there is still a little 16th and l7th century work in the present building; the site has been heavily defended by a large moat on the West and was traditionally a stronghold of the Lords of Galloway.
In Kells churchyard to the North of the burgh is the gravestone of a Covenanter shot in 1685, and an attractive Adam and Eve stone.
