Glentrool Camping and Caravan Site
This is a quiet camp site, situated within south-west Scotland's Galloway Forest Park and the UK's first Dark Sky Park – with more than 1 million trees and 300 square miles of rugged, breathtaking landscapes and home to a wide variety of wildlife including birds of prey, this is the area's ultimate expedition base camp. All our external lighting is Dark Sky friendly making it perfect for stargazing.
We have 14 hard-standing pitches for caravans and motor homes, all with electricity available, tent pitches - 7 with electric hook ups, a motorhome service point, dog walk area, a small shop on site and free shower block facilities. All facilities are new for the 2014 season.
There are also static caravans available to hire.
Close by is the coast-to-coast Southern Upland Way which passes within half a mile from us making it an ideal stop-over, the spectacular Loch Trool, the RSPB Wood of Cree Nature Reserve and two of the world-renowned 7Stanes Mountain Biking Trails, make Glentrool Camping and Caravan Site the perfect base camp for your expeditions into the great outdoors!
There's also some tremendous hill walking in the Galloway Hills with the highest peak (The Merrick) standing at 2,766ft.
The Galloway Forest Park also has 250 lochs and covers an area of 300 square miles. We are around 9 miles north of Newton Stewart which is 51 miles from Dumfries in the east and 25 miles from Stranraer in the west, only a short drive from the Cairnryan / Belfast ferry route. Despite lying within of one of Scotland's great wilderness areas we are just over two hours' drive from the M6 / M74 on the Border between England and Scotland.
The Galloway Forest Park has some of Scotland’s most amazing wildlife – but without the long drive north including Red Squirrels, Otter, Pine Marten, Black Grouse, Golden Eagles, Red Deer and even Nightjar.
There is also a great pub and restaurant just 8 minutes walk from us.
