Newton Stewart is the Gateway to the Galloway Hills and forest park

Newton Stewart is a charming town nestled on the banks of the River Cree and at the foot of the Galloway Hills.

The town is known as the Gateway to the Galloway Hills, the latter being very popular with walkers and mountain bikers.

The Galloway Forest Park, one of the largest forests in Britain, boasts many excellent walking opportunities and is the only Dark Skies Park outside North America. The area has among the lowest levels of light pollution in Europe, making it ideal for stargazing. 

Breathtaking scenery abounds in this tranquil corner of Scotland, making it the ideal place for a quiet break away from the hustle and bustle of modern life.

The River Cree and other nearby rivers offer excellent fishing opportunities (salmon and trout) and within a few miles of the campsite are the RSPB reserves of Wood of Cree and the Crook of Baldoon near Wigtown, Scotland's National Book Town.

The town has excellent amenities including a leisure centre and museum. 

There are also some fine coastal walks and sandy beaches within a 30-minute drive of Newton Stewart.
