Galloway Forest Drive

New Galloway


A spectacular drive through the Galloway Forest

From New Galloway, take the A713 towards Dalmellington and Ayr. This is a good road and passes through some lovely scenery. You may stop after a few miles to look at the medieval village of Polmaddy, and then the Heritage Centre at Carsphairn.


NB Unfortunately, this drive will be closed to visitor for the remainder of 2020

A further7 or 8 miles brings you to a left turn signposted Loch Doon, Castle Doon and the Carrick Forest Trail. This is a single track road which quickly brings you to the shores of the beautiful Loch Doon. There is a small café.
