A little further afield is Galloway Forest Park, which offers plenty to explore from mountain hikes to woodland walks. For something a little more local, try a circular walk to Port Logan and back direct from site.


Things to try

There are a variety things to do in the area, from watersports to sea angling. Head to the Mull of Galloway, Scotland’s most southerly point, or Castle Kennedy where you can explore the walled gardens surrounding the castle.


Pubs and restaurants

New England Bay offers a remote escape, and as such there aren't many places to eat near to site. We recommend bringing your own food for a barbecue, or if you're up for venturing a little further afield, head north to Portpatrick and try the Galloway Bar and Restaurant or Campbells.
