Galloway Kite Trail

Galloway Tourist Route

Follow some or all of the Galloway Kite Trail to find nature walks, hides and viewpoints, and get the best chance of spotting the area’s majestic red kites. To the east of Laurieston you can visit Bellymack Hill Farm Feeding Station, one of the points on the route, to watch one of the daily feedings and see these great birds of prey close up.

Another stop on the trail is the RSPB Ken-Dee Marshes Nature Reserve which has both woodland and wetland to explore, and a kite-watching platform which is also excellent for watching visiting geese in winter.
