  • Cream o’ Galloway


    family fun activity

    Welcome to Cream o’ Galloway!

    Set in the beautiful Galloway countryside, Cream o’ Galloway is a family visitor attraction on an organic dairy farm, and the home of the luxury ice cream enjoyed throughout the country.
    With its Adventure Playground built for children and adults, nature trails, tearoom, garden, bicycle trails and special events, Cream o’ Galloway really does have something for the whole family.

    There are 25 flavours of luxury dairy ice cream and dairy free sorbet to choose from in the visitor centre, open daily between Easter and the end of October. The family friendly centre is also open for the February school holidays and at weekends in March. Check out our on-line calendar for opening times and ticket prices.

    Built for adults and children to play together, the indoor and outdoor play areas include ‘Go Boing!’, a series of suspended nets a bit like a giant trampoline. Children aged 6+ and adults can enjoy the Flying Fox zip wire, the Drop Slide and Pedal Karts, plus a viewing tower, 3D maze, assault course and the fabulous ‘Smugglers’ Warren’ indoor play area.

    Daily Events

    A daily Ice Cream Tasting Event allows the opportunity to try a selection of different flavours. Choose Finlay’s Farm Tour or the Food Tour to meet the cows on the farm. Special Events such as seasonal wildlife events and ice cream making activities are offered during the year. To find out what’s on when and to pre-book discounted event tickets, take a look at the Cream o’ Galloway website

    Cream o’ Galloway started making ice cream in 1994, and in 2013 diversified again into cheese making. Taking the ‘Food Tour’ or the ‘Finlay’s Farm Tour’ is the best way for your family to hear all the stories and see behind the scenes at this award winning business.

    The buggy-friendly nature trails take in two wildlife lochans, a wildlife hide, acres of young woodland and some stately ancient woodland too.

    After all that fun and adventure you’ll want to tuck into a treat from the menu, much of it made with produce from the farm.

     when shades of night began to fall, certain young mathematicians shed their triangles, crept up walls and down trees, and became pirates in a sort of Odyssey that was long afterwards to become the play of Peter Pan. For our escapades in a certain Dumfries Garden, which is enchanted land to me, were certainly the genesis of that nefarious work, Peter Pan.”

  • Laggan Outdoor


    Laggan Outdoor

    Laggan Outdoor  offer adventure and recreational experiences for all the family.

    Set in the heart of Dumfries & Galloway, on the hills above the Solway coast, you really will struggle to find a more stunning location.

    The Zip Wire

    The adventure starts from the second you arrive when you get harnessed up and then take the 10 minute off road journey to the top. It’s high, the road is bumpy, but the views are just breath taking.

    Members of our team will then talk you through the procedure and then it’s launch time – get clipped in, safety checks will be carried out and then you’re off, hurling down hill at up to 30 metres above the ground at speeds of up to 45 mph. You’ll have the best view of the whole centre from up here, flying over the Mountain Balling track, Mountain Boarding track and thankfully missing the Clay Pigeon shooting ground!

    Once at the bottom, you’ll be greeted by another friendly member of the team who will help you back down to solid ground. And if you’re mad enough, you can do it all again!

    Archery

    Once you have had an initial indoor lesson with us, you can move on and tackle the Archery Range with real life 3D targets in the forest. Live like your ancestors and try and catch your food, taking on a bear, a wolf, a boar and a deer, but only heart shots will count in this exciting new archery range.

    Given the unpredictable weather in Dumfries and Galloway, offers a great wet weather activity for the family.

    Segway

    Lead by one of our experienced instructors, groups of up to 6 people will be taught all the techniques of how to ‘glide’ on the Segway over differing terrain.

    The tour will have you navigating your Segway across hills and fields that sit high above the Solway coast. Try your nerve over various terrains and put your new found skills to the test. The views that you will experience will be some of the best in the region.

    Clay Pigeon Shooting

    Never shot before? Not a problem.  With our in-house instructors, we’ll guide you through everything you need to know, including gun safety, master eye, holding the gun, aiming and hitting your first clay.  We’ll be right next to you all the time to give tips where required.

    Shot before and hold your own certificate?  Great!  We can run sporting clay sessions for you or even a simulated game drive.

    All you need to have a go is a minimum of 2 people some warm and padded clothing depending on the time of year and some sturdy footwear.

    Grass Sledging

    Thanks to special tracks on the bottom of the sledges, these can travel just as fast as snow sledges and with steering & brakes you’ll be as safe as houses. Race against your friends or mum and dad.

    We have 10 sledges available. You can just turn up and hire or call and book to avoid disappointment.

    Glenwhan Gardens, Arboretum and Tea Room

    Glenwhan Gardens has been described as one of the most beautiful newly made gardens in Scotland. with unique & stunning sea views across to the Isle of Man, Luce Bay, and the Mull of Galloway.

    The Gardens are a labour of love, hewn from rough moorland 35 years ago. With the warming influence of the Gulf Stream, Glenwhan grows many tender plants from around the Southern Hemisphere, together with large collections of rare trees and shrubs. A numbered tree trail for the dendrologist has been collated, along with a 17 acre moorland walk with 120 species of wildflowers, grasses, and ferns. Two small lakes (Lochans) are the focal point of these family-run gardens, with seats and  meandering paths running along enchanting walks with interesting scupltures, which the visitor will discover.

    The Tearoom prides itself on its delicious home baking and warming  homemade soups. Home-grown vegetables and use of fresh locally-sourced produce are used wherever possible. We have a small but well stocked plant nursery situated by the tearoom, incorporating many of the plants which may be seen growing in the gardens. We aim to produce our own plants and we are happy to propagate any plants for our customers.

     

    Glenwhan Gardens are open all year round so that our visitors can experience the full range of the seasons and changes in our flora and fauna.  During the Spring and Summer months, when our tearoom is open, please obtain your tickets from the tearoom.
