Kirroughtree has a great restaraunt and bike shop so you can fill up on great food before hiring a bike or using your own on the world renowned 7stanes Kirroughtree trails. Fantastic forest walks and amazing wildlife there to be discovered.
The main Gateway to Galloway Forest Park Kirroughtree was rebuilt in 2013 to meet modern standards and visitor needs.
Fully accessible both in and around the bulding but also to the wild watch hide as well. A full 'Changing Places' faciltiy is part of the building.
There's always something different to see and do here at Kirroughtree, whatever the time of year. The new visitor centre is a great place to kick back and enjoy the view, browse the displays or fuel up for the trails, and there's lots of information about what to see and do.
If you fancy a gentle stroll, wander to the Wild Watch Hide and spot red squirrels and woodland birds, or meander to picturesque Bruntis Loch for a picnic. Burn off some steam in the adventure play park or try the orienteering course, check out the single track on your mountain bike or enjoy a gentle family cycle on the forest roads. This is also a great place to be after dark, when the stars put on a spectacular show!
