Galloway and Southern Ayrshire UNESCO Biosphere

Galloway and Southern Ayrshire is a unique and special place. So much so that the area has been designated a UNESCO ‘Biosphere’: a status awarded to world-class environments that demonstrate a balanced relationship between people and nature.

Our Biosphere offers a truly authentic lowland experience with remote open moorland, lonely lochs, quiet ancient oak woodlands, and picturesque villages all contributing to its character, providing opportunities for contemplation and awe. It is a place of cooperation and collaboration that shows that a sustainable way of living is not only possible but already happening!

The landscape and its people have fired the imagination of creative minds for centuries. Painters, musicians, crafts people and sculptors have been inspired by the area, it being home to world class environmental art including Striding Arches by Andy Goldsworthy.

For a truly authentic lowland Scotland experience you need to meet some of the people who live and work here. You can join one of our Biosphere Guides. They offer bespoke experiences tailored to show you some of the unique and memorable sites of our Biosphere. Alternatively, you might like to try our Biosphere Routes, specially designed to give you a self-guided experience around some of our hidden gems. Or perhaps you’d like to visit one of the Biosphere Communities where you will be assured of a warm and friendly welcome. However, you decide to explore our Biosphere you are sure to have an unforgettable experience.
