Colvend and Kirkcudbright lie by the coast in the centre of the Region, as does Cally Palace that skirts Cally woods. Newton Stewart lies at the administrative centre of Galloway Forest. Finally, there is Wigtownshire County near Glenluce that is the perfect course for the not so fit golfer.

The Little Gems Trail

New Galloway Golf Club
