Cream O' Galloway There's deliciously good fun to be had at Cream o' Galloway!
Located in the heart of Galloway just a stone’s throw from the coast, Cream o’ Galloway Visitor Centre is a popular place to visit for outdoor exploring, events, lunch, wildlife spotting and, of course, ice cream. Over the past twenty years our visitor facilities have evolved in response to visitor feedback and the ideas of our team. Our visitor facilities continue to evolve in response to changed circumstances. Due to the complications of Covid-19 we took the decision to close the adventure playground at Cream o’ Galloway, and remove the indoor play at the end of 2020. We know this has been disappointing to many people, and we are sorry. Instead we are focusing on events and fun, hands-on activities, like our hugely popular Ice Cream Making Workshop. All events and activities must be booked in advance, so please plan ahead. Whatever you love doing during your holiday, we hope you’ll enjoy spending some time with us!.

Galloway Kite Trail An exciting nature watching opportunity
The Galloway Red Kite Trail, an exciting nature watching opportunity to view spectacular red kites in lovely scenery is now attracting the attention of walkers, cyclists, wildlife lovers and birdwatchers in Dumfries and Galloway and from much further afield. The 'Galloway Kite Trail' around beautiful Loch Ken promotes the population of kites, recently re-established in Kirkcudbrightshire, as a source of nature-based tourism to benefit local communities in the area. In so doing, the trail is helping to strengthen the 'ownership' of the kites by local communities and tourist operators. The trail is an anticlockwise route of some twenty four miles around Loch Ken (winter) with an additional fourteen miles of forest drive (summer only). Being out on a bike is a great way to spot red kites and for the energetic, it’s a reasonably level route, with cycle racks provided at Boat O Rhone, New Galloway and Mossdale. The west side of Loch Ken is particularly quiet and attractive for cyclists.

Sulwath Brewery Come and meet the brewers!
Come and meet the brewer, learn the secrets of preparing
traditionally crafted ales, and see for yourself the care and skill that
goes into making a fine hand brewed Scottish pint using 100% natural ingredients
We take great pride in the production of our products which are brewed traditionally, with no concentrates, colourings or extract and with accent on the taste of yesteryear.
When was the last time you savoured the aroma of a mass produced beer, or tasted its wholesome natural flavour? The name "Sulwath" is the ancient name for the Solway Estuary. This is reputed to date back to a ford, or crossing near the mouth of the river Esk which marked the border between Scotland and England around the 13th Century, and from general usage, the estuary became known as "Sulwath" with the predominance of migratory seabirds in the upper reaches of the Solway. Come & meet the brewer on our conducted tour every Monday & Friday at 1pm
