Described as the ‘Gateway to the Galloway Hills’, Newton Stewart sits on the River Cree as it flows into the Solway Firth. The choice of activities here is endless, from trekking the trails through the 300-mile-square forest and reaching the height of Merrick’s impressive peak, to kayaking and water skiing in dedicated adventure centres. Nearby Cairnsmore (5 miles) and Wigtown Bay (12 miles) are fantastic nature reserves, the former a rugged wilderness, the latter encompassing salt marshes and mudflats. The tranquil lochs near Newton Stewart are perfect for quiet fishing or an afternoon painting, while the town bustles with activity including bowling, golf and shopping.
The town is easily accessible from the north of England and central Scotland, and has a wide variety of amenities, including shops, cafes, restaurants, a leisure centre and other services.
