These historic seaside gardens set in over 50 acres on the shore of Wigtown Bay on the Solway Firth were created in 1740 by Lord Garlies, son of the 5th Earl of Galloway.
Galloway House Gardens offer a fascinating network of formal garden paths and informal natural woodland walks amidst superb scenery where a variety of interesting plants from wild flowers and shrubs to magnificent old trees thrive due to the region's mild climate. In early spring the gardens are bright with snowdrops and daffodils, followed by a display of rhododendrons and azaleas.
The gardens and woodlands lead directly to the seashore and a beautiful sandy beach beyond which you can follow the coastal path to the spectacular heights of Cruggleton Cliffs and the ruins of Cruggleton Castle.
