Flowing from the wild uplands to the Solway Firth, including the historic towns of Castle Douglas and Kirkcudbright, the Galloway Glens project area, in South West Scotland, is home to a fascinating mix of natural and man-made environments.

One of the the first hydroelectric schemes in Scotland sits alongside the largest Forest Park in the UK and includes the UK’s first Dark Sky Park and Scotland’s first UNESCO designated Galloway and Southern Ayrshire Biosphere. Focussing on an area within the Ken and Dee river catchments, a series of projects will be undertaken that connect people and communities with the unique natural and cultural heritage of the region.

You can see the bulk of our application to HLF, completed studies and minutes of meetings on the ‘resources’ page and a summary of what we hope to do on the ‘projects’ page.
