Nearby are the ruins of Kenmure Castle which has an unfortunate history of being burned down three times. 

New Galloway is a good base for leisure activities around Loch Ken and in the Galloway Forest Park, with golf, fishing and various water sports all available. Each August the nearby village of Parton stages the Scottish Alternative Games which feature such unusual events as tractor pulling and snail racing.
