An Upland ride in Galloway, Scotland

The area inland from the coast

Beyond the coast the land rises to higher ground and the population thins to nothing. There are wild glens and a raven dark night sky. This is the place for battles, the Outlaw King - Robert the Bruce. The cattle thieving of the Border Reivers and the brutality of the clearances. It does a good impersonation of the Scottish Highlands, but without the midges.

It feels like another world as you gain height. Their are views across to Ireland, the Lake District and the Isle of Man and a quiet filled with the sound of Skylarks.

Look out for our logo animal, the Belted Galloway Cow.
